On January 11, a new photography exhibit will open at the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago.
Reflections is a documentary-style photography series of black and white photographs of personal living spaces of over sixty renowned individuals whose lives and careers have addressed the fundamental political, economic, and social realities of the 20th century and beyond.
In each photographic image, a mirror is strategically placed as the subject is reflected in it.
Currently, the collection includes a network of luminaries such as legendary photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks, dancers Harold and Fayard Nicholas (The Nicholas Brothers), civil rights activist Daisy Bates (The Mother of Little Rock Nine), sculptor Selma H. Burke, and artist, filmmaker, and publisher Camille Billops, along with 63 other great individuals.
Accompanied by Tar’s personal written memoirs of his photo shoots, Reflections reveals a creative collaboration of dialogue between Tar and his subjects and culminates into an emergence of art and information sharing for all to learn and enjoy.
