Bright Lights & Raw Gems – Portraits From The Bahamian Project
Dozens of high-quality portrait images will be on display in a major exhibition opening at the Central Bank of The Bahamas Art Gallery on Thursday 6th July, 2017. The exhibition ends Friday July 28th.
The exhibition will showcase dozens of new, fine art portrait images of people whose character reflects the true beauty of The Bahamas.
The Bahamian Project was created by photographer Duke Wells and his wife Lisa in 2012 in collaboration with Popopstudios and the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. Over the past four years, Bahamian Project photographers have created more than 130 high-quality portraits that capture the character of people whose lives have helped shape the heart and soul of The Bahamas.
The portraits tell the story of people from all walks of life, throughout the Islands of The Bahamas.
Some of the portraits are of people who are well-known social and cultural icons (Bright Lights). But the Bahamian Project also includes portraits of unique individuals who, while not as well-known, have lead lives that define the essence of Bahamian society (Raw Gems).
The opening of the exhibition at the Central Bank Gallery is scheduled for Thursday July 6, 2017 at 6:00pm.
The exhibition ends on July 28th, 2017.
