A few years ago I started a project of photographing people who are normally ignored and considered off the grid: the homeless of Winston Salem.  This project entitled Beyond the Edge of the Fields was inspired by studying the works of legendary street photographers.

In cooperation with Reynolda House Museum of Art, The Aperture Theater of Winston Salem and The Sawtooth School of Visual Arts, Beyond the Edge of the Fields will be exhibiting September 20th through November 4th 2018 at The Aperture Theater.  The opening on Thursday September 20th from 5-6:30pm

Beyond the Edge of the Fields is a visual representation of a relationship that grew from casual photography of strangers to trusting relationships developed over time through twice weekly deliveries of food, clothing and other necessities.  This trust enabled me to get to know how they got to this point in their lives, what their dreams were when they were young, who they are now and what demons have followed them through out their life journeys.

These moving images represent the people beyond the street corners, revealing intimate details of those who live in between the lines of our society.

Please come out to the opening to meet with me, ask about the project, and enjoy the photographs, food and camaraderie.  I'll have a book available and the framed photographs are for sale with 100% of the sales going to these homeless individuals.
