About In Light of Everything 

"In Light of Everything" is a career retrospective exhibition featuring the work of renowned photographer Debbie Fleming Caffery. The exhibit showcases nearly 100 black-and-white photographs in three distinct spaces at the New Orleans Museum of Art, spanning her career from the 1970s to the present.  

Caffery's photos capture moments where everything aligns in the act of photography, drawing from her life experiences and acute observation. Caffrey describes the exhibition to be “about that moment, in taking a photograph, when everything works…eyes, guts, heart, life experiences, [and] years of paying attention.” Her distinctive style, characterized by deep shadows, striking lighting, and long exposures, serves as a contemplative exploration of various facets of human existence, including faith, labor, childhood, and the natural world, presented in both familiar and enigmatic ways.
