Click646 brings photographic inspiration to Greenwood

One of my really good friends is from Greenwood
, and he has a long and intertwined history there that one can recognize when he talks about his connection to the place. A couple of times I’ve even detected a little bit of foggy mist in his eyes that tells me that the small town is as much a part of his psyche as the blood that runs through his veins.
On several occasions my friend has mentioned the hidden swells of artistic talent in and around Greenwood. On Oct. 6, visitors will be able to see this for themselves when they visit click646
, a photographic collective. The day-long event will feature workshops with the likes of internationally known photographer John Harrington and an exhibition of works by college students from around the state. This is the fourth year for the event, which was founded by the much-lauded local conservation photographer Jon Holloway
This year’s keynote speaker will be Robb Kendrick
, whose work you may know from National Geographic. Kendrick also works extensively in wet-plate photography, an technique that was used during the 19th century that results in what is known as tintype photos. Through the wet-plate process, all photos are handmade from start to finish and each is one-of-a-kind.
After a day of learning and observing, event-goers will have an added treat in a performance by the critically acclaimed rock band Red Wanting Blue -- a perfect way to end a day of artistic stimulation.
