MECA&D, Porteous, Osher Hall, Second floor
Free and open to the public
Séan Alonzo Harris is a professional photographer and his work focuses on human experience and identity and examines how individuals visualize themselves and how they are portrayed. His images bear witness to often invisible or overlooked members of our communities, and create portraits that provide a counter-image and narrative of self-worth and personal agency.
Harris has received critical acclaim for his work, is a Kindling Fund grant recipient and was selected for the 2018 Portland Museum of Art Biennial. He has a BFA from the Art Institute of Boston and his professional practice includes collaborative, community-driven projects with nonprofit organizations.
"My work is marked by a fine art sensibility and an emphasis on environmental portraits. My creative process draws from a wide range of photographic traditions and methods and is driven by an authentic connection to my subjects and my clients. I’m genuinely curious about peoples’ lives and the experiences that shape their world.”
This event is part of Resilience Week at MECA&D (February 7–14, 2020). View the event schedule and details here.
