Sasha Wolf Project’s Summer Show

In June, as protests against racial discrimination and violence were exploding across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death, I made two trips to Eatonton, GA to explore the roots of author Alice Walker for my body of work in-progress, SOUTHERN FICTION. Three images shot on Wards Chapel Road, one portraying the church where she was baptized and another of the cemetery where her parents and ancestors are buried, are included in Sasha Wolf’s summer group show presented on her website. The online exhibition brings together a loose collection of recent work by artists responding to these challenging times with photographs and reflections on these images by Elinor Carucci, Kris Graves, Sasha Rudensky, Christopher Rodriquez, Bryan Schutmaat, Chuck Kelton, Barbara Bosworth, and Caleb Charland.

Rocket Science Magazine Fundraiser

Mural commemorating the 1966 Port Gibson Boycott led by the NAACP, Port Gibson, Mississippi, 2020

I’ve donated a photograph shot in March 2020 of a mural commemorating the 1966 Port Gibson Boycott led by the NAACP in Mississippi from my body of work in-progress, SOUTHERN FICTION, to Rocket Science Magazine’s fundraiser dedicated to organizations who support Black lives and the ongoing fight against racism.  On April 1, 1966, the local chapter of the NAACP imposed an economic boycott on the majority of white-owned businesses in Port Gibson. Picketing and peaceful marches and demonstrations demanding equality and racial justice continued on and off for eleven years, during which a significant number of business failed or closed. Prints of this image, produced by Light Work Lab in an edition of 10 for $100, can be purchased on Rocket Science Magazine’s website though July 17 and proceeds of sales will be contributed to the NAACP.
