BRISTOL, Tenn., Feb. 1, 2016 – King University senior Rachel Burrus will host a gallery
show of a portion of her photographic work called “Antiquated” on Friday, Feb. 5 from
6-8 p.m. in the King’s Den in Maclellan Hall on King’s main campus in Bristol, Tenn.
The showcase will include a reception, and attendees will have the opportunity to
meet the artist.
The project Burrus is showcasing centers around her love of the past. “I have always
[been drawn to] vintage styles; it has always been prevalent in my work. For this
show, I wanted to expand upon it from my previous work and improve and sharpen it.
I took this opportunity to try and perfect it.”
The “Antiquated” gallery show will focus on portraiture in the styles of the 1920s
and 1930s. The photography focuses both on how the model is styled as well as how
the photos are captured. “I pay special attention to costuming. The skill I have developed
over time includes paying attention to certain types of clothes, hairstyles, makeup,
accessories, and props. Even the lighting styles, the way the subject is lit, are
very important as well as the backdrops such as muslin which saw more frequent use
in days gone by.
“The end product gives the viewer the experience of looking at a photograph in the
style of an old tintype,” comments Burrus.
Rachel Burrus will graduate April 30, 2016, with a degree in Digital Media Art & Design
with a concentration in Photography and a minor in English. Her career plans include
opening a photography studio specializing in portraits and weddings, along with some
fine art photography.
The gallery show “Antiquated” by Rachel Burrus opening in the King’s Den is free and
open to the public.
