Thomas Sayers Ellis: Paradise ǀ Paradise Layered Opening Reception

June 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join FMoPA for the opening reception of Thomas Sayers Ellis: Paradise ǀ Paradise Layered, on June 20, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

During his tenure, he created a visual story of Saint Petersburg and its inhabitants. This story is sometimes comical, sometimes dark. But most of all, it sheds an intriguing light on the mechanism of the Florida tourist industry, the people that keep the city running and the people the city attracts like moths to a flame. By using a mixture of black/white and color photography, digital as well as film, and accidental double exposures, Thomas put together an eclectic collection of images that constructs a multi-layered account of his year as SPMOP’s first Photo Laureate. An accompanying photo book with an extended collection of Thomas’s photographs and poems will be presented at the opening.

On view: June 18-August 4, 2024, Gallery 2
