Raymond Meeks work in photography is an extension of his life and family. It stays with viewers because of this inherent honesty and his way of uncovering simple beauty in the things around him. Since 2000, Meeks has produced over twenty publications, of which twelve have been self-published and distributed. Many of Meeks books can be difficult to find, yet to view any one book will be a memorable, emotional experience for most. For this exhibition at Light Work, we are lucky to exhibit more than fifteen books, including his Orchard collaboration with other artists. This catalogue includes a conversation between Raymond Meeks and Light Works director Shane Lavalette.
