I’ll be teaching a workshop at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art for absolute beginners. More info here.
In conjunction with my oral history and portrait project STEWARDS, I will be cohosting the incredible, nomadic storytelling BYO. This month’s theme is “A Queen Within” and half of the storytellers hail from STEWARDS project. Info here.
STEWARDS is an investigation to South Louisiana women, the intentional space they create, and the intersection with healing. Book, and accompanying launch, TBD in early May.
In conjunction with the museum’s exhibitions The Colorful South and William Eggleston’s Troubled Waters, I’ll be facilitating a color photography workshop will teach participants how to make aesthetic choices to create visual themes, convey emotions, and tell stories within their images. More info here.
I will be teaching digital photography techniques at Mobile Museum of Art. This is a continuation of my previous beginner’s class in conjunction with curator Richard McCabe’s Contemporary Alabama Photography exhibition. More info here.
For three years I worked—in conjunction with The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation— as the main photo researcher for the ambitious, beautiful and informative musical tour map A Closer Walk, where you can explore New Orleans musical history block by block.
A massive thank you to the esteemed A Studio in The Woods for granting myself and —fellow visual anthropologist + collaborator— Gretchen Faust a winter residency to complete a short documentary and accompanying book on Louisiana female herbal healers. Hot damn, I could’t be more excited to live and create in the woods for a bit.
Couldn’t be more excited to receive funding from Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms to create a short documentary and photo series on five farms in the U.S. Blackbelt region. The work will highlight farmers whose work is dedicated to social justice while infusing their respective local economy.
I couldn’t be more ecstatic to donate my collection of prints from the Where They At project to the Amistad Research Center at Tulane University. My prints are an addition to the center’s Where They At Collection, and will be archived alongside my project partner Alison Fensterstock’s transcribed interviews from over 60 key architects of the New Orleans hip hop sound.
The Amistad Research Center is committed to collecting, preserving, and providing open access to original materials that reference the social and cultural importance of America’s ethnic and racial history, the African Diaspora, human relations, and civil rights.
