RECOLLECTIONS: A Community Photography Project
June 10 - July 16, 2017
Joint Receptions at both Kingsley House and NOPA: June 30, 2017

Diana Nicholette Jeon (MFA IMDA ?06) is showing the diptych You Cast Spells Because You Can from her series, I, Orfeo in the RECOLLECTIONS exhibition at the New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery.

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. Russell Lord, Freeman Family Curator of Photographs, Prints, and Drawings at the New Orleans Museum of Art, curated the exhibition.

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.

The project will be celebrated with joint receptions at Kingsley House and the New Orleans Photo Alliance on June 30, 2017.
