RECOLLECTIONS: A Community Photography Project
I feel so honored to have my image “remember me” shown in “Recollections” at the New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery. This exhibition displays a collection of images carrying a very personal memory from the maker’s past, and the emotions that were provoked by that remembrance.
Open June 10, 2017
Closes July 16, 2017
RECOLLECTIONS: A Community Photography Project’s NOPA exhibition is part of a collaboration between the Photo Alliance and Kingsley House in New Orleans. The project uses the medium of photography to trigger and document individual memories and their associated emotions. Photographic artists submitted work in response to the exhibition theme, RECOLLECTIONS. Selected images evoke a memory or emotional response to a specific memory from the artist’s past.
The project concludes with two exhibitions: a contemporary fine art photography show in the NOPA gallery and an exhibition of photographic works created by participants in Kingsley House’s Adult Services program with NOPA photographers and Kingsley House staff. Russell Lord, Freeman Family Curator of Photographs, Prints, and Drawings at the New Orleans Museum of Art, will curate both exhibitions. The project will be celebrated with joint receptions at Kingsley House and the New Orleans Photo Alliance on June 30, 2017.
