Parisians I Did Not Quite Meet

When: Fri., Dec. 16, 6-9 p.m. 2011

Many travelers take pride in their itineraries. Determined not to miss anything, they carry maps, shuttle routes, and lists of destinations. Then there are the Reese Moores of traveling, who bring only a camera and an open mind. On a recent trip to Paris, Moore hoped to experience the city by focusing on its people, not its landmarks. “Everybody kept asking me, ‘What are you going to see?’ and really, I was going to see the people,” Moore says. Her upcoming exhibit, Parisians I Did Not Quite Meet, will reveal what she discovered. As an English major in college, and a contributing editor to Charleston magazine and contributing photographer to the City Paper, Moore says she has always been fascinated by narrative, which is what she hopes to capture in her first photo exhibit. “There’s something special about immersing yourself in the human narrative of a different place,” she says. “You get to be the outsider, but you’re still connecting with people at the same time.” In addition to her street photography, the opening reception will showcase feather creations by Sarah Poe and locally crafted Grow Your Own Roots T-shirts by Kate Barton. Guests can enjoy light refreshments and beer or wine as they browse to the jazzy sounds of the Jordan Gravel Trio, who will be performing live.
