Dry is among the most recognized and awarded photographers in America. In addition to his achievements as a photojournalist for outlets such as the Courier-Journal and National Geographic, Dry has enjoyed a storied career as a preeminent commercial photographer. Traveling the world, he has amassed a portfolio that is as rich and complex as the places his images document.
“As an arts community, we are fortunate to have such a world-renowned photographer living and working in our midst,” said Ghislain d’Humières, Director of the Speed Art Museum. “His portraiture work captures the very soul of the subjects he photographs and we are proud and honored to exhibit his work at the Local Speed.”
Dan Dry: Facing the World highlights Dry’s remarkable accomplishments as a portrait photographer. From his early work documenting significant Louisvillians like Muhammad Ali to his travels as a National Geographic photographer, to his current series of cell phone portraits, portrait-making has been a constant theme throughout Dan Dry’s career. The exhibition’s images mirror his wide-ranging career, showcasing extraordinary people from around the world seen through the lens of an extraordinary photographer. Dry is currently the Chief Visual Officer at Power Creative in Louisville.
