WAUKESHA, WIS.— A new exhibit opening at Carroll University will feature the archival ink jet photographs of William Zuback. “Book Passages: A Visual Journey” will be displayed in Main Hall, 120 N. East Ave., Waukesha, from Oct. 18-Nov. 20, 2012. A reception will be Thursday, Oct. 18, from 5-7 p.m. All visits to the gallery are free and open to the public.
Zuback is a professional photographer who manages the studio for a magazine and book publishing company in Waukesha. He graduated from the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, Calif. He creates conceptual/staged contemporary photographs that deal with issues of family and identity, often in a surreal style.
“Book Passages” is an interactive series for which Zuback asked friends, family and fans to send brief excerpts from their favorite or current book. Although thematically different because of the variety of donated book passages, this series has a striking thread of similarity. It showcases the complexity of human communication.
Zuback curated the exhibition, “Madonna & Child: Interpreted,” in 2011 for Gallery H2O in Milwaukee, and co-curated the exhibition, “What She Said: Wisconsin Photography Now,” in 2012 for EFFJAY PROJEKTS Gallery in Sheboygan. His work can be found in private collections throughout the country.
