Acclaimed Memphis Photographer to Host Visual Series

By October 10, 2013 No Comments

Award-winning photographer Erica Dunlap of the popular Arekah the Goddess Photography will host a showcase of her work – LIGHT: In Black and White. The viewing will occur from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Marshall Arts Gallery and Studios, located at 639 Marshall Avenue
in Memphis.

Dunlap, who is winner of the Tri-State Defender’s Best in Black Award for Best Photographer, said she wanted to host the showcase because she wanted to offer viewers a deeper look at the two colors: black and white.

“I am immensely excited about the opportunity to showcase my work in this manner,” Dunlap said. “I wanted to give viewers an opportunity to explore the deep connection between the two colors – black and white. I chose these colors because of their classic beauty and connectivity to each other. I think event attendees will visualize this special relationship through my light.”

LIGHT: In Black and White is the first of a three-part series for Dunlap. LIGHT: In Black and White showcases beauty by highlighting the contrast between the two colors. The other two parts of the series – LIGHT: In Levels, a visual crescendo of the grief process; and LIGHT: In Darkness, a visible battle between sensuality and modesty. The series is a slight deviation from Dunlap’s focus on fashion and beauty photography. All of the works, including those in the series, highlight feminine beauty.

In addition to winning the Tri-State Defender’s award, Dunlap is also a 2013 nominee of the Stone Awards in the Best Photographer category. Her work has been featured in Kamoy, Essere, Vibrant, and Sheen magazines, as well as NBC.
