South Dakota Photographers Reflect on Their Craft

2014 brings the 175th anniversary of photography, being celebrated with “A Day in South Dakota”.  It’s an opportunity for people to take photos of what living in the state means to them, and send them along as a video archive of the day.  Collecting memories and recording history have obviously moved along as technology has improved photos and made them simple enough to take.  

The latest Emerging Artist exhibition at the Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City features black and white photos by Alex Eichler exploring tattoo culture. His photographs don’t focus on tattoo designs, but the many types of people who wear body art. The exhibit, “Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover,” runs through August 22nd.  A public reception is on Monday. Eichler is a recent graduate of Black Hills State University in Spearfish.
