The Deaf Heart: a Forty-Year Photographic Retrospective
Williams Gallery
March 11th, 2016 - April 22nd, 2016

The Deaf Heart: a Forty-Year Photographic Retrospective is an exhibit of selected photographic works by Deaf writer-photographer, Willy Conley.  Conley, who is an RIT/NTID alum, shoots photos that range from the biomedical to the serendipitous.  Included in the exhibit are published images from his debut novel, The Deaf Heart. 

Conley is an award-winning, published writer and photographer who received an associate’s degree in photography at RIT/NTID, a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Photographic Communication from RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences (1981), and certification as a Registered Biological Photographer.  He has worked at some of the top medical centers in the U.S.:  Johns Hopkins, Yale, University of Texas Medical Branch, and Cedars-Sinai.  His photographs have appeared in the following books and on some of their front covers:  Deaf American Poetry, No Walls of Stone, Broken Spokes, Deaf World, Pictures in the Air, Vignettes of the Deaf Character and Other Plays, and most recently, The Deaf Heart.  Conley’s images can also be seen in numerous publications such as American Photographer, Industrial Photography, The Baltimore Sun, Carolina Quarterly, Big Muddy, Camera Obscura, Arkansas Review, Folio, The Tactile Mind, unchARTed, 34th Parallel, and Gallaudet University Press book catalogs. Memorable photographic exhibits were Heart/Eye/Hand – works of 12 Deaf artists, Ankrum Gallery, Los Angeles, 1986, and A Blessing in Disguise – a two-man show of biomedical photography, Mary Switzer Gallery, NTID, 1980.

Conley also holds a master’s degree in Creative Writing/Playwriting from Boston University (where he studied with Nobel Laureate, Derek Walcott), and has a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary-Intercultural Theatre from Towson University. Conley is a professor of Theatre and Dance at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.  For more info about his work, visit www.willyconley.com.
