Iowa City-based photographer Barry Phipps will show photographs from and talk about his book Between Gravity and What Cheer. When Phipps relocated to Iowa City from Chicago, he knew nothing of Iowa. In these photographs Phipps documents rural Iowa communities as they are now, without condescending or overemphasizing the decline of small town America.
Barry Phipps is an Iowa City-based multimedia artist and professional photographer. He is the founder of an apparel company, a recording studio, and a record label. His latest album The Town was released on his own Tight Ship Records label.
