Curiosities features black and white images through which Harbert explores humans’ interventions on the landscape, whether it is built, simply arranged, or altered. Harbert uses a plastic “Diana” camera, made in the 1960’s, to capture and distort his subject matter, evoking qualities of the surreal, the solitary, and the not-quite-ordinary.
Tonee Harbert received a degree in Visual Communication from Ohio University in 1986. He has lived and worked in Maine since 1988, photographing both the state and its inhabitants. His work traverses the documentary, editorial, and fine art photography realms. Harbert has received grants from the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Community Foundation as well as an Emmy award in 2013. His photographs have been included in two motion pictures and exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Portland Museum of Art, Danforth Museum of Art, University of Miami (FL), the Institute of Contemporary art at Maine College of Art, and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art.
