Shooting from the Hip: Mexico

View Full Event Description

The Consulate of Mexico in New Orleans is pleased to partner with the satellite program P.3+ of the biennial Prospect New Orleans to present the photographic exhibition of artist Michael Alford "Shooting From The Hip: Mexico" from October 2nd to October 30th, 2014.

An opening reception will be held October 2nd at 6 PM.

Michael Alford is a multidisciplinary Conceptual artist. His work ranges from documentary photography, large scale public sculpture to Land Art. "My work often explores and challenges the conventional ideas of Art and what can be used to create it." Michael spent the first half of his life as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces Special Operations. He earned his B.F.A. from Baylor University while on active duty and recently an M.F.A from Louisiana State University. The artwork of artist Michael Alford has been exhibited and found in several corporate, private, national and international collections.

In his artist statement Michael Alford explains: "On a recent trip to Mexico City, I decided to take a different approach. In a more Conceptual attitude, a plan was formulated and the project began. The images would be captured in a more "street/gorilla" fashion. My camera was concealed in a shoulder bag and images were taken using a remote control. The images would not be manipulated post process and presented as such. I did however; use different lenses and filters according to lighting or weather conditions. What you see is what I got. I did not attempt to take or make a perfect photograph. For this project, I worked intuitively with the camera yet allowed the camera to find its own composition. These images represent a real, raw and non-manipulated moment in time. It is a unique flash of life that can't and won't ever be replicated. More than 200 images were captured but these are some of my favorites."
