Photographer and performance artist Maury Gortemiller will present All-Time Lotion at The Reading Room February 9 through Feburary 23, 2013. The opening reception will be Saturday, February 9 from 6 to 9 pm and the closing/performance will be on Saturday, Feburary 23 at 5 pm. The exhibition is guest curated by Danielle Avram Morgan and photographer Kevin Todora.

Gortemiller lives and works in Atlanta. His practice includes photography, performance and artist books. He “mines the Janus faced elements of photography”, including alleged objectivity, context, and staged versus spontaneous events which leads to some very provocative and sometimes delightfully confusing images. The Feburary 23 performance/talk will focus on his Competitive Apnea series.

Gortemiller’s work has been shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Atlanta), Black Mountain Art Center (North Carolina) and Appalachian Photographers Project at the Reece Museum at ETSU (Tennessee) and Flash Forward Festival (Boston). Fall Line Press has published three books of his work. He received an MFA in photography from the University of Georgia.
