Photographs preserve discrete moments in time, but they also encapsulate complexities of art and technology as well as social practice and lived experience. When descendants of the original sitters gathered this past fall for the opening of Worcester Art Museum’s Rediscovering an American Community of Color: The Photographs of William Bullard, Lou Jones was there to record the extraordinary gathering. The resulting photographs commemorate the reunion not only of families, but of analog and digital technologies, evolving photographic aesthetics, and a historic Worcester community. In this new series of African American portraiture, Jones places his subjects in conversation with the historical photographs that link them together across space and time, memory and experience.

The exhibition will be on display in the Higgins Lounge at Dana Commons from February 1 through May 20. Please contact the Higgins School for hours and availability.

Co-sponsored by the Higgins School of Humanities, Africana Studies, and the Department of History at Clark University
