Fall Line Press welcomes Eliot Dudik to the city on Saturday, April 21st. At 3 p.m., Dudik will give an artist talk about his series, “Road Ends in Water,” and sign copies of his book, which are available for purchase at the Fall Line Bookstore.
Eliot Dudik is featured in the April issue of PDN as one of the 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch. His project, Road Ends in Water is a documentation of Highway 17 that bisects the South Carolina Lowcountry. The landscape is changing as the highway is being widened to accommodate commerce, tourists and urban refugees while it displaces families, homes and even culture. A monograph of the work was published in 2010.
Eliot says of this series, “This collection of images and thoughts is a tribute to, and an acknowledgment of, the respect the modest souls of this region, obscure from the mainstream, deserve for their tenacity, good humor, social commitment, and acceptance of the ebb and flow of the often incomprehensible vagaries of existence.”
Eliot Dudik is an adjunct professor of photography at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. Eliot received a BS in Anthropology and a BA in Art History from the College of Charleston in 2007. He pursued his love of photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design, graduating in 2010 with a MFA in Photography.
