Opening reception for Beyond the Deadlines: Independent Weekly Photography by DL Anderson & Jeremy M Lange

When: Fri., March 18, 5-8 p.m. 2011

Disclosure: The Independent Weekly has two fine photographers on its staff, D.L. "Derek" Anderson and Jeremy M. Lange. Both came to the Indy as young shooters boasting stringer cred from major news organizations—the Associated Press and Chicago Tribune in Anderson's case, The New York Times in Lange's—and have taken many thousands of images in the course of covering all sorts of stories. Working at the Independent requires that they not only be available for traditional spot-news photography but that they adapt to the rigors of shooting a rock band, a fashion model, a baseball player, a poet, a plate of food, a scene of environmental despoliation, a corrupt politician. In every case, they strive to make their pictures interesting and truthful, subtle and aesthetically adventurous. Anderson and Lange have culled several dozen images from their work—mostly for the Independent—of the past few years. Included in the exhibition are images from Lange's project of following North Carolina-based military personnel during a decade of war and Anderson's work with large-format photography. The show opens with a reception tonight at 5 and remains on view through May 15. —David Fellerath
