About the Artist

Mary Tortorici, an Associate Professor of Art and Head of Photography at Eastern Kentucky University, has been a photographer for more than 30 years. Her color photographs chronicle unusual yards and scenes she discovers while traveling the back roads of Kentucky. She received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Yale University School of Art and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Massachusetts College of Art. She has received numerous awards and grants for her photographs, including a Ford Foundation Grant and a Film in the Cities/ McKnight Fellowship. In 2004, she was a recipient of the prestigious Kentucky Arts Council Al Smith Fellowship Award.

Artist's Statement

I set out to find some redeeming value in the mundane of vernacular American culture and to include in my photographs its symbols and iconography. I continually redefine a place in the world that strives to unite incongruent aspects of our culture and the natural world. The landscape and our visibility in it are constant reminders of our values and how we wish to make ourselves be known; what we are willing to build, buy, discard, neglect or preserve. The objects and activities of people and nature are left as a measure of these hidden driving forces.
