The Galerie Catherine & André Hug presents Carl Corey‘s photographs for the first time in Europe in an exhibition entitled Americaville. Carl Corey is an American photographer based in River Falls, Wisconsin, whose work focuses on the American cultural landscape with a look at areas of historical significance. Carl knows his country intimately having crossed the country from coast to coast ,from north to south. Shedding light on small communities and places usually invisible. His observations are like singular postcards that identify physical and societal landmarks. Corey documents the past and the present and brings them together in a single temporality.
In 2019, Carl Corey received a Guggenheim Fellowship for Photography.
Widely featured in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad, his work has also been published in many of photography’s most prestigious periodicals. He has received more than 100 awards from the advertising, publishing and photography communities and his photographs have been the subject of several books, including The Tavern League: A Portrait of the Wisconsin Tavern (The Wisconsin Historical Society Press, 2011), Contemporary Photography in New York City, edited by Marla Hamburg Kennedy (Rizzoli, 2011) in which he was one of the featured photographers, and Rancher (Bunker Hill / GalleryPrint, 2007). For Love and Money: A Portrait of the Family Business was released in April 2014. His works are part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Wisconsin Art, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Wisconsin Historical Society, as well as many other collections of museums, businesses and individuals.
