Vennie Deas Moore’s exhibition A People of the Land merges history, culture and community with the art of portraiture. Moore was born and raised in the South Carolina Low Country, a coastal, picturesque region renowned for its historic cities and communities. Through photography, she creates portraits that document the powerful and impactful stories of low-country subjects following in the traditions of Zora Neale Hurston and Dorothea Lange.
A People of the Land: Low Country Portraits will be on view from June 1st to July 31st at the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History Conference Center in Augusta, Georgia.
