The Big Camera is an on-going project, initially funded by the Bailey Grant, to turn a utility trailer into a fully working Camera Obscura and Mobile Darkroom. Along with Donna Moore and John Allen, I teach the Community Alternative and Historic Photographic Methods; we've volunteered and taught at Knox County Schools, Roane State College, Knox Makers, Central Filling Station, The Knox County Public Defenders Community Law Office, Boys & Girls Clubs of East TN, YWCA, UT Botanical Gardens and More.
The Community Faces Project is a collaboration with Donna Headrick Moore. Community Faces debuted as a small project of wheat pasted portraits of Wild Love Bakehouse and Mid-Mod Collective employees in August 2018. The goal, with further funding by the Tennessee Arts Commission, is to create awareness of the wonderful diversity in Knoxville and strengthen community bonds. We believe Kindness Matters no matter what your background. Check out the completed project and press HERE!
We are continuing installations to benefit other non-profits and build interconnected Community. Please reach out if you are interested in partnering with us.
