The American artist Keith Carter [b. 1948, Madison, WI] grew up in Beaumont, Texas, a small delta town on the Louisiana border, and was raised by his mother who worked as the local portrait photographer, Following in her footsteps, Carter embraced photography, capturing the people and spirituality of the Southern landscape in which he was raised and still lives. More than fifty years later, his photographs have become synonymous with the art of storytelling, revered in Southern literature and art. Keith Carter makes photographs about memory and place, always looking for the poetry of the ordinary. While the children held at the detention center in Tornillo have been reunited with family members or sent to other refugee centers, their souls remain in the Texas desert. It is this presence that Carter photographed, as well as various people who have helped bring this evolving story to the forefront.
