For this Black History Month, we’re thrilled to partner with photographer Seen Lynn to offer free family portraits to our community!
The Black family portrait, throughout history to the present, has always been an accessible, but vivid practice of self-representation that offers a more genuine and realistic portrayal of Black identity and dignity. Whether being made candidly within the family, or posing for a staged portrait, Black family portraits continue to reveal the inherent beauty, resilience, diversity, and style of our people and culture.
We are prioritizing families who do not have studio family portraits, so we ask that you only reserve a space for you and your family if this applies to you. Portraits will be organized through 15-minute time blocks, with limited availability, so RSVP is required!
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR GUEST PHOTOGRAPHER SEED LYNN!
Writer, imagist, and artist, Seed Lynn, submits memory work as a liberatory practice. Whether sensually, technically, or artfully applied, Lynn meets the lens as a travelin’ state where listening and witnessing make voice timeless. And true.
This light invades his work, finds and frames subjects honestly, and creates brave space where stories find students. Lynn’s own studies concern how we remember ourselves, how that memory is imaged, and how remembrance itself, in the face of oppression, is a cathartic and radical act of protest.
We hope you’ll join us for what will be a memorable moment for you and your family!
