Ralph Eugene Meatyard - Stages for Being

Years ago, a friend (who is not necessarily a photoweenie) mentioned that he was a huge fan of Ralph Eugene Meatyard’s photographs. I had to admit that I was unaware of his work, as was most everyone I asked about him. I had to search far and wide to see any mention of his work and very few other friends were aware of him. Since then, his work has gained substantial awareness and he has become a cult hero.
