The Light That Shatters Darkness

This exhibit highlights some of Doc Horrell's iconic images of a region's mining history and, yes, a touch of nostalgia inherent in his photos from an era not so far in our past.

C. William "Doc" Horrell, once a student and later a faculty member at Southern Illinois University, was a key figure in the establishment of SIUC's Photographic Services and the Department of Cinema and Photography. Many of his photographs were published in one of Horrell's books, The Land Between the Rivers (1973), and Southern Illinois Coal: A Portfolio (1995), the latter documenting the coal industry in southern Illinois.
