Burk Uzzle
Nasher Artist in the News: Burk Uzzle
Tune in TODAY to an interview with Burk Uzzle by guest host Phoebe Judge on “The State of Things” on WUNC (91.5) at 12:06 PM and also 8 PM.

Three summer exhibitions explore the remarkable career of North Carolina photographer Burk Uzzle - at the Nasher Museum, the Ackland Art Museum at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the North Carolina Museum of Art.

Read about his work in this month’s Garden and Gun magazine: “And though Uzzle has photographed seemingly every corner of the country, and indeed much of the world, his global experiences seem only to have reinforced his interest in those regions closer to his birthplace. Much of his recent work has focused on the South.”
