Reflections: Intimate Portraits of Iconic African Americans

Terrence A. Reese (a.k.a. TAR) has created an unusual photographic exhibition. His portraiture features Americans of renown, not in traditional close-up poses, but in the density of their living space. His subjects’ mirrored images, set in their personal environments, give insight that reveals much about who they are. This black and white “photography-as-art” exhibit evolved from his published volume of the same name. The viewer has the amusing challenge to find the subject of each image. Some are more difficult to find than others, by design, but all are worth the effort.

Exhibit will be on display August 31 – November 30,2018
