Keith Carter: Ghostlight

Artist Reception and Book Signing

Saturday, December 9, 2023

From 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm


This exhibition, coinciding with the release of Keith Carter’s book, Ghostlight, features photographs that were taken in the mysterious swamp land and forest of the Big Thicket in Texas. 


Keith Carter (b. 1948, Madison, Wisconsin), is known for his regional images of Texas, especially around his home town of Beaumont. Although he has traveled the world to create poetic images of interesting people, animals and nature, he spent several years before and during the pandemic, walking through this extraterrestrial land that is near his home.


The book is an extraordinary compilation of images and text that immerse the viewer in this hauntingly beautiful landscape. Keith will be signing copies of the University of Texas Press monograph, designed by Pentagram’s DJ Stout and Michelle Maudet, on Saturday, December 9th, from 3 – 6 PM.


Keith’s photographs can be found in many major museum collections including the Amon Carter Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, J. Paul Getty Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, George Eastman House, Art Institute of Chicago, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Special collections include Elton John, Michelle & Barack Obama, Diane Keaton, and Horton Foote, who wrote a forward in Keith’s first book.


This exhibition is free, and the Artist Reception/Book Signing event is open to the public.

Books can be purchased at PDNB Gallery, or online via the gallery website,
