Perceptions and Recognitions:
African Americans of Eastern North
Carolina by Burk Uzzle
Perceptions + Recognitions is a new body of work by internationally recognized photographer Burk Uzzle commissioned by the Greenville Museum of Art. The exhibition consists of 24 original photographs of residents in eastern North Carolina and debuted at the Greenville Museum of Art in 2017.
Perceptions + Recognitions is designed to offer individuals, families, and organizations a way to experience their neighbors, whether familiar or unknown.
The title reflects the fact that too frequently we hold perceptions about others that are disconnected from their truths and therefore inaccurate. Art has always afforded us the opportunity to share seminal emotions with strangers, to realize a connection, to know that our human experience may not be unique although our circumstances may be unrecognizable
