Unapologetically Noir Photography Exhibit

     “What does it mean to be black?” is one of the main questions centered around the exhibit  “Unapologetically Noir.” Featuring over 30 photographs of black men and women from all walks of life, Anderson showcases diverse physical and mental characteristics of the participants. Opening Reception to be held Friday, February, 5th, 2021, Exhibit on display through March 14th, 2021.

     Inspired by the documentary “The Black Catholic Experience” by community activist Elaine Castellanos, this exhibition combines answers to an array of personal questions along with the medium of photography to create an environment where the subject’s differences are not only highlighted but celebrated.     The vision is to expand the gallery with more subjects to further the conversation on the topic of “What does it mean to be black” and broaden the often-narrow views associated with it.

     Although there are numerous divides across the country, this exhibit aims to celebrate the African American culture and continue to instill a sense of pride throughout the community. Unapologetically Noir aims to demonstrate how the medium of photography can be an essential cultural tool in spreading information across our ever-changing landscape.
