MELODIE MCDANIEL @ SPOT PHOTO WORKS

unnamed-1MELODIE MCDANIEL: AMERICAN SPECTATOR
Sept 19 – Nov 9, 2015

reception 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday September 19th.

n her photographic journey McDaniel explores the intersections of faith, culture and race. Her masterful portraits reflect on a citizenry where white and black, large and small, young and old seek solace and community at church services, in diners, on their stoops, in dark bars of towns whose prime is past and whose present is marred by hard economic times.

Michelle Sank @ The Royal Albert Memorial Museum &Art Gallery

unnamedMichelle Sank Touch-Line: A Photographic Record of Rugby World Cup 2015, Exeter
19 September to 4 November

Urban and rural landscapes complement portraiture to give a comprehensive visual record of the preparation for the World Cup in Exeter. The photographs of signage, organisers, players, spectators and fans reflect the diversity of interest and importance of Rugby in Exeter’s communities. Her photographs differ from the mass of imagery that circulates around Rugby World Cup 2015. She eschews the conventions of sports photography to present a surprising and touching perspective on a highly physical sport. There are images about people playing Rugby, yet the focus of the collection is on the culture, the group dynamics and the ritual that surrounds the sport.

The Royal Albert Memorial Museum &Art Gallery is in Queen Street, Exeter EX4 3RX. Phone 01392 265858
