    ABOUT: 

    Photo Laureate Photographer and poet Thomas Sayers Ellis presents the results of a year long collaboration with SPMOP with a visual story of Saint Petersburg and its inhabitants. This story is sometimes comical, sometimes dark. But most of all, it sheds an intriguing light on the mechanism of the Florida tourist industry, the people that keep the city running and the people the city attracts like moths to a flame. By using a mixture of black/white and color photography, digital as well as film, and accidental double exposures, Thomas put together an eclectic collection of images that constructs a multi-layered account of his year.. An accompanying photo book with an extended collection of Thomas's photographs and poems will be presented at the opening. Opening on June 20th. The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, Tampa.

    Exhibition: June 18 - August 4
