An exhibition of photographs of the house of Reynold's Price, taken by Alex Harris exhibited with quotes from Reynolds Price.

Price surrounded himself at home with art and objects that he loved. His eclectic and expansive collection-from the etchings of Picasso to photographs of James Dean, from Greek sculpture to religious icons, from busts of his literary heroes to African masks-created a salon-like refuge in which every wall, bookshelf, and piece of furniture signaled some aspect of his essential self.

After Reynolds Price died, Alex Harris was asked by the Price family and Duke University, where Price taught for more than five decades, to document the house before it was sold and the artwork as a living collection disassembled. In this creative work, forty carefully selected excerpts from Price's writings are interwoven with sixty-one of Harris's exquisite, meticulous photographs.
