CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina University will showcase Civil War themed photographs beginning in July.

An exhibit of photographs named "Broken Land/Still Lives" by Eliot Dudik, will open at the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery at CCU on Monday July 13. 

The exhibit will showcase locations and exploring themes related to the American Civil War.

“These photographs are an attempt to preserve American history, not to relish it, but recognize its cyclical nature and to derail that seemingly inevitable tendency for repetition.” Dudik says.

“Broken Land/Still Lives” won the PhotoNOLA Review Prize in 2014. In 2012, Dudik was named one of Photo District News’ 30 new and emerging photographers to watch and one of Oxford American magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art.

Dudik's work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and other U.S. cities.

The exhibit is free and open to the public and runs from July 13- August 21; a closing reception with the artist will take place on August 20 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the gallery.

The gallery is open Monday thru Thursday from 9 a.m- 5 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
