Austin Peay State University student Lauren McKinney will exhibit her tintype portraits and prints in the show, “Sui Generis” from April 13-16, 2015, between 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. The opening reception is free to the public and takes place on Monday, April 13 from 5-8 p.m.
McKinney’s portraits celebrate the unique characteristics of both the individual and the tintype by highlighting the inherent qualities of each individual photographed. “The minute gestures and idiosyncrasies that could not otherwise be duplicated if attempted or forced are the ones that capture the true essence of the person being photographed,” McKinney said. “These brief moments in time, the captured essence of the individual, are the quintessence of portrait photography.”
McKinney has shown work locally in group exhibitions at the Downtown Artist’s Co-op and Austin Peay. This will be her first solo exhibition.
