Fifty framed pictures that tell a story of real people doing real things from the 1930s to today taken by Joe Clark and his son, Junebug, photography consultant with the Frank W. & Sue Mayborn School of Journalism, will be exhibited June 1 through July 22 in the UNT On the Square Gallery. Opening Reception. UNT on the Square. 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 5.

Joe Clark embarked on a photographic journey in the late 1930s to document the lives of his family and friends in rural Tennessee. His images of Appalachian culture were featured in prominent national magazines such as LIFE and National Geographic.

During the 1950s, Joe began shooting images for Jack Daniels and captured not only the process of making whiskey as well as the spirit of the distillery, its employees and the community of Lynchburg, Tenn.

Junebug Clark, Joe’s son, followed suit, shooting images as soon as he was able to hold a camera. The two men have distinguished themselves as professional photographers both in their commercial work and in photojournalistic endeavors.

Junebug and Kay Clark, his wife, donated The Clark Family Photography Collection 1939-2000 to the UNT Special Collections Library. The Collection is being digitized and appears in the UNT Digital Library as the Clarks begin to add their personal narration.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
