Though inadvertently born elsewhere,
Rhett L. Beck has lived in Kentucky
for many years and has deep family
roots in Appalachia. Much of his work
has featured the effects of nature on
the built environment, most notably a
series of photographs documenting the
abandoned distilleries in Millville,
Kentucky, a selection of which were
published in Burying Monkeys: A
Photographic Journey through the Old
Crow & Old Taylor Distilleries
(Broadstone Books, 2012). His work
has been exhibited and is in
collections in Kentucky and California.
The Jane Chancellor Moore Gallery is proud to be the exclusive agent for
the photography of Rhett L. Beck in Kentucky and on the web. Please
contact us for sales or information on any of the photography on this site.

Rhett had his first solo California
show in Spring 2014 in the Lemon
Grove Library, San Diego County.
The exhibition consisted of two
different but inter-related bodies
of work in two areas within the
library. "Vaqueros" featured
photos of (primarily) children and
families, and "Latitude 13"
portrayed the people of Peru.
Rhett and Broadstone thank the
staff of the Lemon Grove Library
