ARTIST TALK AT 2 PM; PORTRAIT SESSIONS TO FOLLOW


This summer, Andrea Morales has been photographing Memphis as part of Crosstown Arts’ Studio Residency program. The Peruvian-born and Miami-raised photographer’s ongoing project looks at the details of life in the city’s neighborhoods (particularly in Crosstown and North Memphis) through documentary and portraiture work. Motivated by her background as a photojournalist at community newspapers, this addresses a communion of sorts with Memphis as a new home.

The studio space afforded by the residency is dubbed “Daisy Curtain” Studio for the season and serves as a means to meet folks while developing studio portraiture practices. Come visit Daisy Curtain, view some work in progress and learn a little about the documentary process. Folks who come by also have the option of having their portrait made, perhaps as part of the project, but mostly because there’s no such thing as a bad face. Participants will get a free print and/or digital file for their time.

The artist will host 2 additional portrait sessions over the summer: 

Sunday, July 24, 2016; 1PM-5PM
Sunday, July 31, 2016; 1PM-5PM
