RECOLLECTIONS: A Community Photography Project

Feature image: “Lind and James with Guns,” by Lisa McCord, 1982, silver gelatin print

June 10, 2017 – 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.
