Bainbridge Performing Arts will showcase photography by island image-maker Harry Longstreet in the BPA Gallery beginning Friday, Aug. 1.
Longstreet refers to his style of candid documentary photography as “humanist realism.”
He uses photography to try to capture the truth about diverse people and how they live and reflect on their respective spaces. Longstreet’s subjects never know they’ve been photographed; he doesn’t set-up or pose any shot and he never employs any artificial lighting.
“No one just takes up space,” Longstreet said. “The human condition is an entire canvas of thoughts, emotions and reactions to circumstances.”
There will be a special artist reception event during the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Winslow from 5 to 7 p.m. Aug. 1.
Gallery hours throughout the month are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, plus one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free.
