Fort Works Art is excited to present the work of renowned Texas photographer Byrd Williams IV. Titled Memory, Imagery, and Mortality, the collection includes more than 30 works that depict the scope of the aging process. A darker, in-your-face, exploration of the realities of growing old, the collection showcases a variety of photographic mediums and techniques, including palladium collage and 19th Century film development practices.

A fourth generation photographer, Byrd is best known for his urban work in the U.S. and Europe. He produces extremely detailed photographs, usually as triptychs, using a very large format view camera. He is currently working on a project about cultural violence and religion in Texas. Williams has been teaching photography for 26 years and is the chair of the photography/graphic design department at Collin College. He is a published writer and international artist whose work has been shown and collected at the Amon Carter Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Stadt Museum of Trier Germany as well as many publication and collections throughout the U.S and Europe. In 1997, Williams was selected as an artist in residence in Bad EMS, Germany and lived at Wagner’s castle, the “Schloss Balmoral.” His work on the civic use of German, French, Belgian, English, and Dutch street corners was featured on television and exhibited in several west German cities in 1997 and 2007. Williams’ work can currently be seen at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.
