The River Inside on exhibit in Helena, Arkansas

The River Inside
Apr 01 - Aug 01, 2010
Reception on May 1st
Delta Cultural Center
Helena, AR

“The River Inside: Photographs By John Guider” is the result of an amazing journey Guider made in a 16-foot canoe, starting in early August 2003 from Spencer Creek near his home in Williamson County, Tennessee, and ending three months and 1,200 miles later at New Orleans.

An acclaimed Nashville commercial photographer, Guider made deliberate choices to avoid the artifice to which he was accustomed in Music City, and instead attempted to record his trip in the manner of the great photographers who recorded life and landscapes during the Great Depression. Guider captured more than 10,000 images, selecting and processing 75 platinum prints to tell his tale.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring this powerful exhibit to the Delta Cultural Center during Heritage Month 2010,” said DCC Director Katie Harrington, noting that Guider’s themes mesh with those of Heritage Month 2010 – “The Road Less Traveled: The Enduring Heritage of Rural Arkansas.”

A reception will be held in conjunction with the exhibit and the kick-off of Heritage Month activities on May 1.

Gallery hours at the DCC Visitors Center and the nearby DCC Depot at 95 Missouri Street are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
