Bart Parker and Rita Dewitt are a married couple who have worked collaboratively as photographers and photo educators. Bart and Rita work with composite images and collage, addressing themes including identity, history, and human life in tension with the natural world. They have each received NEA grants for their work. Bart taught for twenty-five years at the University of Rhode Island; Rita taught at the Rhode Island School of Design. They now live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
"One of the longest-lasting teams to consistently challenge the boundaries of contemporary art...Throughout nearly 30 years...they have produced evocative and influential series that have extended notions of collaborative creativity into our modern era."
