Eudora AR Obituaries and Death Notices

William Christenberry, artist of a crumbling, memory-haunted South, dies at 80 - Washington Post

Monday, December 12, 2016

Evans’s photographs.“Let Us Now Praise Famous Men” became Mr. Christenberry’s artistic lodestar, and the words of Agee and other Southern writers, such as William Faulkner and Eudora Welty, strongly shaped his artistic sensibility. He became friends with Evans, whose stark images of weathered buildings and haggard farm families were a lasting visual influence.Most photographers of the time, Evans included, worked in black-and-white, but Mr. Christenberry came to see his simple color snapshots as a distinct art form, even though he knew little about the technical aspects of photography. (He took his film to a drugstore to be developed.)Evans encouraged Mr. Christenberry to continue using his Kodak Brownie, almost a toy in the world of serious photography.“Young man,” Evans told him, “you know exactly where to stand with that little camera.”He began to exhibit his photographs in the 1970s and later began to use an 8-by-10 view camera to create larger images, but the essence of his work never changed.“I don’t want my work to be thought of as maudlin or overly sentimental. It’s not,” Mr. Christenberry said in a 2005 interview with photography historian Robert Hirsch. “It’s a love affair — a lifetime of involvement with a place. The place is my muse.”In his 2013 book “The Storied South,” William R. Ferris, a scholar of Southern culture and former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, named Mr. Christenberry one of the three most important photographers of the South, along with Evans and William Eggleston.“What Faulkner has done in his fiction, Christenberry has done in his photography,” Ferris wrote. “He has such a feel for what Eudora Welty called ‘the sense of place.’ ”Along with his photography, Mr. Christenberry continued to paint, and he also made collages and small models of real and imagined architectural structures that he called “dream buildings.” He also created and rarely exhibited a “Klan room” tableau, using dozens of G.I. Joe dolls outfitted in the white robes of the Ku Klux Klan, with an assortment of disturbing images of violence, including coffins and guns.“I hold the position that there are times when an artist must examine and reveal secret brutality,” Mr. Christenberry told The Washington Post in 1997.By temperament, however, Mr. Christenberry was placid and contemplative. He returned year after year to Hale County, even taking Evans with him in 1973, two years before the elder photographer’s death. Every summer, Mr. Christenberry wandered the Alabama countryside, taking pictures of lonely places that drip
