Mid-westerner Carl Corey makes photographs in traditional documentary fashion, traveling through Wisconsin in his RV, and offering glimpses into the workings of small towns and the people who inhabit them. His work is both cogent and wryly affectionate. In Tavern League, he trained his sights on eating and drinking establishments that have long been essential to the social and cultural fabric of Wisconsin communities but are in danger of disappearing as times change. Tavern League led to his examination of the plight of other family-run businesses in a series called For Love and Money. An ongoing related body of work, Blue, honors the American worker, from factory floor to office desk.
