‘Like A Bad Penny’ By Rachael Banks

“A bad penny always turns up.” It’s interesting how a proverb’s reference to counterfeit money has become a phrase for unwanted things. Photographer Rachael Banks uses the saying as a metaphor for her life. “Despite my attempts to reconcile with the destructive actions of my parents and the region I was born into,” she said, “I am also inevitably attracted to people with these same attributes.” So, her solo show, part of the Louisville Photo Biennial, is perfectly titled. Expect photographs of relationship issues, dysfunction and a sense of place. —Jo Anne Triplett
