Closer to Home

Close to Home reveals how central Worcester and its environments have been to Tony's work
and the most intimate aspects of his life.  The humor, vitality, repose, pathos, charm, intellect,
affection and disarmingly complex simplicity of the images reflect King's own spirit and character.

For over seventy years, Tony King attentively observed the world around him, capturing it with rare artistry as a photographer and elevating the ordinary in a way that can make anyone see their everyday world with fresh eyes. Known particularly for his iconic pictures of wildlife and the New England landscape, King's greater breadth is definitively clear in Closer to Home. There are factories here as well as hawks; portraits of the memorable and less memorable as well as rolling pastures; yawning kindergartners as well as early snowfall on toppled fence posts.
