This book is a compilation of photographs taken by Bud Dorsey, West Louisville, Kentucky’s, most iconic living photographer. Dorsey has dedicated over 50 years to documenting life in Louisville, especially the experiences of African Americans. The photographs in Available Light show us life in Louisville as many of us have never seen it before. Dorsey teaches us how to look at our community: with love, curiosity, respect, nuance, concern, playfulness, hope, heartbreak, and pride. Available Light is a love letter to Louisville, crafted outside of mainstream arts and media worlds over the course of decades by a man who cares and has always been there to bear witness. The book is the culmination of an 18-month collaboration between Bud Dorsey and the Louisville Story Program, the book’s publisher. Hardcover, 2.5 pounds. 187 pages.
