Our Living Past
February 1-28, 2018
Originally created as tintypes, the photographs in this exhibition have been reprinted using the unique platinum palladium photographic process, which allows for a broad tonal range and depth that approaches the appearance of the originals. The result is a stunning collection of images that perfectly resonate with the age and tone of the musicians they capture.
In a related event, FMoPA and Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts (TBBCA) will host a cultural encounter at 5 p.m. on Feb. 16 with University of Tampa professor and author, John Capouya. His novel, “Florida Soul: From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band,” draws on extensive interviews with surviving Floridian musicians to honor the achievements of Soul’s golden age. The event will include a reading from the novel, discussion and a tour of “Our Living Past.”
