Photographer Stephen Hilger, who has been out shooting in the LSU/VA Footprint for some time now, has an artist's talk at Tulane on Wednesday, March 2 that includes a number of powerful Lower Mid-City images.
Here's a bit from Stephen himself:
I'm giving a public talk at Tulane this Wed, 3/2 at Tulane University's Stone Auditorium (210 Woldenberg Art Center). It's an artist talk on my photography including work made in the Lower Mid-City neighborhood during the past two years.
My photographs investigate notions of history, place and the social landscape. Working on projects that unfold over extended periods of time, my work constructs visual archives of the disappearing. I seek to collect and consolidate the fragmented touchstones of what is passing in the face of change and destruction.
I've had a chance to get to know Stephen through his work in the footprint, and I'd encourage you to attend.
