Ralph Eugene Meatyard: Stages for Being

Art Show, Photography

Ralph Eugene Meatyard (1925 – 1972) moved to Lexington in 1950 and developed a passion for photography along with his career as an optician. Over the next two decades, he would craft the enigmatic images that would assure him a place in the history of the medium. He used masks, dolls, and found objects as unsettling props; mined architectural detail for abstract compositional elements; and set the mood with evocative natural lighting. Stages for Being—the largest exhibition of Meatyard’s work ever shown in his adopted hometown—celebrates his life and legacy with 100 rare, vintage prints.
