William Christenberry, the wonderful artist of Alabama's decay, came to the Red Barn this weekend to give a talk in the building whose change he has documented for nearly fifty years. His quiet, calm, careful words and his photographs and sculptures were very moving, almost bringing me to tears. At nearly seventy, he stands tall and poised, with perfectly combed hair, crisp white shirt and slacks.



I love William Christenberry! His pictures really remind me of Walker Evans', but with a more lifeless feeling, if that makes any sense. More ghostly.

He is also my single favorite artist. His sensitivity, creativity, and productivity are huge inspirations.
