U of L Photo Exhibit @ Ekstrom Library

Through June 29

Ekstrom Library
Free; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays

Author and photographer Steven W. Plattner gets around. The former U of L photographic archives researcher has not only studied and written about photography extensively, he has traveled the country the past few years practicing his craft. A collection of his work, titled “All Over the Map: Photographs across America, 2006-2012,” will be on display at the U of L Ekstrom Library through June 29. The collection depicts subject matter Plattner found to be extraordinary. “So much of our built environment today is homogeneous, monotonous and quotidian,” Plattner says. “I gravitate instead toward subjects I consider exceptional — places, objects and people that evoke a unique vision and are steadily fading from view, often paved over and forgotten.” On Thursday, Plattner will give a gallery talk as part of a reception in Photographic Archives at 5 p.m. —Kevin Gibson
