Zora J. Murff has emerged as a distinguished voice in photography dealing with the complex intersections of race and American society. Earlier works have focused on a facility for incarcerated youth, where he was employed; the historically black neighborhood of North Omaha, Nebraska; a cityscape shaped by “redlining”; and other prejudicial housing policies. Gas Money (Affirmation #1) is a sumptuous yet stark image, which questions our assumptions about the connection taking place, and creates a vivid sense of tension built out of capitalism as much as connectivity. Murff is Assistant Professor of Photography at the University of Arkansas. He received his MFA in Studio Art from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln.
