Teenie Harris's star keeps burning brighter and brighter, and is now shining high in a massive show of his work currently on display at The Carnegie Museum of Art here in Pittsburgh through April 7, 2012. Teenie Harris, Photographer: Image, Memory, History is the catalogue to that show and it goes a long way to revealing the amazing social, cultural and spiritual riches of Pittsburgh's African-American community. Anyone wondering what makes Pittsburgh special can find a large part of their answer of display right here. The show is long over, but the Carnegie has really made Teenie's work a central pillar of it's Pittsburgh holdings. Anyone who enjoys and appreciates a hard copy represenatation – not to mention the accompanying critical and historical texts – should consider picking up a copy of the catalogue, as it does a great job of presenting the exhibition, with 100 full-page plates and another hundred supporting images along with a trio of excellent in-depth essays that situate and contextualize Harris's life and work. The printing and presentation is uniformly excellent and the book is a joy. Regardless, everyone should spend some time at the Carnegie's Teenie Harris Archives; it's a wonderful resource.
