Eye Elsewhere, a selection of black and white photographs taken by Evan D. Williams between 1999 and 2019, will be on display at the Mezzanine Gallery at Benjamin Peters (120 The Commons, Ithaca NY) from June 7-30, 2019. This show's main, eponymous series of selenium-toned photographs is a visual travelogue spanning all four hemispheres -- from the Cayman Islands to Finland and the Canadian Rockies to South Africa's Nelson Mandela Bay.

Also on display is Practical Reality, a sequence of portraits paired with redacted book pages; Useful Only For Dreamtime (Don't Confront Me With My Failures), a tetraptych of happy accidents arising from alternative process experiments; and White Box, which contains small prints that visitors can take for free.

The opening reception will take place during Downtown Ithaca's First Friday Gallery Night—June 7 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM—and will feature samplings of rhubarb wines from Richford Hill and live music by Samuel B. Lupowitz.

Williams's previous solo shows of photography include Little Photographs (Juna's, 2007); Portraits (The Shop, 2009); and Not Far From Home (Earlville Opera House, 2017). His work has also been included in over twenty group shows at such venues as the Atlanta Photography Group and Chicago's ARC Gallery, and in books published by Australia's Formist Editions and the Yale University Press.
