Opening Reception for Missing Voices: Field Notes and Photographs from Sapelo Island

Dylan Wilson (M.F.A. photography, Savannah, Georgia)
M.F.A. photography student Dylan Wilson presents his thesis show, Missing Voices: Field Notes and Photographs from Sapelo Island, Oct. 23-26, 2015 at Oglethorpe Gallery, 406 E. Oglethorpe Ave., Savannah, Georgia. The opening reception is Friday, Oct. 23 from 6-9 p.m.  Wilson writes, "Missing Voices: Field Notes and Photographs from Sapelo Island is comprised of mixed media pieces, video, and audio. The intent is to present information about the marginalized descendants of slaves who have lived on Sapelo Island since the early 19th century, to reflect on historical blank spots, and to question the limits of documentary photography. This multimedia installation expands the definition of the document and presents underrepresented narratives of coastal Georgia's history."
