Mitch Eckert’s recent photographs are a case study in mixing our contemporary world problems with tropes from art history. At first glance, his work resembles Dutch still life paintings with memento mori objects that remind viewers of death. Given more time, you will realize you’re looking at decay amidst plastic containers. Eckert’s aim is to get viewers to reflect on what single use plastics are doing to the environment. Part of the Louisville Photo Biennial. Also shown with “This is Not the End” by Native American artists and “Beyond The Frame” by Mary Carothers.
