His current series is a monograph published by UNC Press in association with the New Orleans Museum of Art, “Blue Muse: Timothy Duffy’s Southern Photographs.” Timothy’s work has been featured in TIME Lightbox as well as the NY Times LENS Blog. Duffy’s photographs are in permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art, National Museum of African American History and Culture, the New Orleans Museum of Art, Northwestern University, University of Minnesota, and the Morris Museum of Art. We ask Timothy questions, questions that could only be answered with images…
