THE BUSINESS OF DYING
TIM HURSLEY

January 24 - February 20, 2019

Hursley’s work in “The Business of Dying” provided a stark contrast to his acclaimed architectural photographs of sleek, modern structures. In this exhibition, as in his other fine art series, his attraction was to life on the fringe. Through the artist’s tender lens, we see images that are at once gritty, heartrending and compassionately portrayed. Included were obvious symbols of the loss of life - a casket, tombstone or hearse - but also subtler imagery capturing the passing of a way of life or the death of a town.
