SPEARFISH… Black Hills State University photography student Caleb Munger has an exhibition Thursday, Jan. 26 from 5-7 p.m. in the Emerging Artists Gallery at the Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City.

Caleb is a firefighter from Newcastle, Wyo. and has spent the past year creating a body of work illustrating the perils, triumphs, and human experience from the perspective of the firefighters themselves. His work gives us a glimpse into the realm of firefighting, which is not often seen.

Portion of Artist Statement: “As a photographer I want to document the world of firefighting. Being a third-generation volunteer fire fighter, as well as a seasonal fire fighter with the US Forest Service, has had an enormous influence on my work. The fire service is filled with adrenaline, excitement, and devastation. I want to show the primal beauty of fire while showing the dangerous and courageous acts of firefighters and firefighting.”
