Jackson Fine Art, AIR Serenbe, and The Bitter Southerner are pleased to present an exclusive walkthrough with photographer Andrew Moore of his newest body of work, Blue Alabama. Join us for an evening of stories behind the work.
New York City-based Andrew Moore completed a residency at AIR Serenbe in 2015. He flew into Hartsfield Jackson Airport, rented a car, checked in at AIR Serenbe, and then wandered west. Blue Alabama is the result of Moore's explorations over the next two years, a collection of over 100 photographs taken exclusively in Alabama. 14 of these photographs will be on display at Jackson Fine Art from April 13th to July 7th.
"This newest body of work on Alabama deals with themes of loss and resilience, but given the troubled narrative of the South and the interweaving of fear, cruelty, beauty and spirituality, it’s inherently a more complex and provocative equation. One can see certain themes developed, such as the strong presence of women in southern society, the resonance of the color black, the connectivity of the past to the present, and certainly the tradition of storytelling and conversation which informs so many of the pictures. I also have a sense, perhaps because of the long history of adversity, that the story of Alabama at this moment in time is of growing importance, and that no region of the country better encapsulates the contrasts, the challenges, and the aspiration for truth and reconciliation." -Andrew Moore, 2018
We hope you can join us on Thursday, April 12th for this special preview and conversation with one of the top photographers working today.
Space is limited.
