Tim Hursley was born in Detroit, where he apprenticed with architectural photographer Balthazar Korab. His studio has been located in Little Rock since 1980. Hursley has documented Andy Warhol’s Factory in New York, the Nevada brothels, Rural Studio in Alabama, and polygamist communities in Utah, Arizona, Texas, Montana, and British Columbia. His work is represented by Garvey|Simon Gallery in New York.
In his striking interior and exterior glimpses of the funeral industry in the rural South, Tim Hursley’s photos feature shots of errantly parked hearses, casket showrooms, ranks of carved granite, and portraits of rusted silos and warehouses that look, too, by nature of their juxtaposition, like rows of planted headstones.
