by William Greiner
The great mystery of photography has always been that the process shows us how something looks but leaves us to our own devices to figure out what it might mean. Show and Tell not only embodies this dichotomy but celebrates it.
Photographer William Greiner presented writers with a trio of photographs, asking that they choose one on which to base a story. Twenty-eight photographs and some 46,000 words later, the collaborative results make up his new book, which includes pictures from six of the themes that have marked his career to date: Picturing People, UKOK, Cruise, Baton Rouge Blues, Oh Augusta, and Snapshot.
Greiner's Show and Tell exhibit will be on display this fall at LSU's Glassell Gallery in the Shaw Center for the Arts.
