Description
Photographer Jose Ney traveled through many countries, including his native Cuba, investigating his connection to the land, the people, and the culture. A small collection of his work titled “Los Romanticos Angelos de la Tierra” was exhibited and then acquired by the Southeast Museum of Photography in 1995. While Jose Ney made a strong impression on the museum and the world of photography, the person most impacted by his work was his son, Ney.

Ney recalls the walls of his childhood home resembling an art gallery, covered by his father’s photographs.

And while many fondly recall the smell of their favorite dish being prepared in the family kitchen, Ney recalls the scent of film developer wafting through his house as his father worked in the darkroom. These experiences left an impression on Ney that he has carried through into his own adult life: Ney is now enrolled in photography classes at the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies at Daytona State College.

Encounters, on display in the Rachael Raab Gallery from August 27 through October 26 presents the work of Jose Ney, curated by his son, Ney. The exhibition offers an intimate portrait of a photographer, and a retelling of this man’s story through the eyes and words of his son.
