[Note: The following summary of Briner and his newest exhibit, "Boonville," is from www.featureshoot.com.]
"Timothy Briner currently lives in Brooklyn. He is the recipient of the Hallmark Institute of Photography Grant and this project, Boonville, has been supported by Cannery Works...numerous small town newspapers have catalogued his travels across America.
"Briner grew up in a small town in Indiana and uses his memories as inspiration for this project that weaves the images of six small towns into “Anytown, USA.” He spent a year traveling from Boonville, New York to Boonville, California making stops in Boonville, North Carolina, Missouri, Indiana and Texas. He would initially camp out or stay in a low budget motel and hang out at the local watering hole until he found someone that would offer free lodging and an entry to the community. From there he would spend about a month or month and a half getting to know the citizens of the town and photographing them and their landscape. The result is a sensitive body of images of the people that exist coast to coast. "Boonville" will be on display at Daniel Cooney Fine Art (NYC) through February 27, 2010."
