Moments from our lives pass in a blur and tend to be forgotten. We are constantly moving, talking, watching, sending, and working – so much so that losing sight of ourselves is a shared reality. What happens, however when we slow down? When we sit? When those moments are stilled and remembered in a photograph?
Atlanta-based photographer Melissa Alexander uses her camera to create a space of respite and self-rediscovery. Join her at Central Piedmont Community College’s Ross Art Gallery on August 26th and 27th from 3:00 -7:00 p.m. for Blur: a special community portrait project that reclaims not only our time, but ourselves. Participate in a fun and affirming photo session where your self will be uncovered, your bravery rewarded, and your vulnerability empowered.
Photographs completed during these portrait sessions will be exhibited at the Ross Art Gallery, October 16 – December 12, 2019
