Rachel Boillot: Moon Shine
February 1 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm CST
Rachel Boillot, recipient of the 2017 PhotoNOLA Review Prize, presents her series Moon Shine, in which she documents the traditions of music and faith and in the Appalachians.
Moon Shineis a collection of photographs inspired by the unique musical traditions of the Cumberland Plateau. This region is home to a rich storytelling heritage, showcased in historic fiddle tunes, balladry, religious gospel pieces and other songs passed down as part of a formidable oral tradition. This project ultimately celebrates a place and the creative impulses it has fostered over history while also seeking to document a disappearing tradition.
