ALLIANCE — The Alliance Arts Council presents “200 Boots” by Timm Hoff at the Carnegie Arts Center in Alliance, an exhibition of photographs and installation by professional artist Timm Hoff. The project began when Hoff lost a good friend in 2012. He was left with hundreds of pairs of military boots which he went on to photograph in the trees along the shores of Lake McConaughey. The project is dedicated to his friend and to the veterans who wore the boots. Hoff, who frequents the lake, thought “what a great place to take these photos”. Hoff said the Lake McConaughey Cottonwoods along the beach, known as ghost trees, provide a stark contrast with the blue water and sky. Hoff first came up with the idea to photograph the boots when a large shipment of boots arrived at his friend’s place. “It took on a life of it’s own from there”, he said. What was a tribute to his friend became much more as Hoff researched and visited with veterans. The military aspects have become part of the artistic pursuit, Hoff said. “I found out later, through visiting with veterans that in Vietnam the soldiers would hang their fallen comrades’ boots in the trees. I have learned so much while working on this project. It has been humbling to be accepted into the military and veterans group,” he said. This is the first Nebraska showing of the project after it’s initial showing in Boulder, Colo. in November of 2014. Timm Hoff is a professional printmaker, photographer and sculptor who lives in Alliance. Hoff is a graduate of Chadron State College and University of Nebraska Lincoln Alumni. “200 Boots” runs through March 21 at the Carnegie Arts Center in Alliance. There is an artist reception for Hoff at the Arts Center today at 6 p.m.
