 Yanceyville Barbershop Features in Photograph Exhibition: 1999

More amusingly, Michael Traister's "Storefront, Yanceyville, NC" plays with the mirroring effect of plate glass to condense the images of a headless mannequin and a barbershop sign, "We Want Your Head in Our Business." Cameras can lie after all.

Juried by Tom Southall, curator of photography at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the photography annual at Meredith's art center runs through Dec. 5.

What: North Carolina Photographers Annual Exhibition

Where: Frankie G. Weems Gallery, Meredith College, 3800, Hillsborough St., Raleigh

When: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday 2-5 p.m.; through Dec. 5.

Call: 760-8465

The News and Observer (Raleigh, North Carolina), 19 November 1999.


Michael Traister operates a photography business in Asheville, North Carolina. I attempted to find a copy of "Storefront, Yanceyville, NC," but without success. The photograph shown here is not associated with the Michael Traister photograph.
