New Orleans Photo Alliance proudly announces Exhibition: PERDIDO

Perdido is a meditation on place, time, and memory. In the fall of 2019, I began making a new series of photographs in the Florida Panhandle. At the same time, my connection to the region through my mother and family was beginning to slip away. Bittersweet feelings of sentimentality for the past and a longing for stability in the present guided my search for solace within art. 

The title of the exhibition, Perdido is taken from the Spanish and Portuguese word for “lost.” Perdido is also a homage to Perdido Bay and Key, located to the west of Pensacola. A sense of loss, grief, and a life in transition inspired the creation of the work for this exhibition.
