There is an exhibition of Maxine Payne's photographs 12 - 5 pm at Transy's Morlan Gallery on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday October 29-31. The gallery opens on Wednesday, October 29.
"Photographer Maxine Payne’s photographic installation tells two stories. First, the Depression-era history of Jim and Mancy Massengill, who built a homemade camera and trailer so they could travel the state from 1937 to 1941 making and selling pictures, three for a dime. Inspired Payne presents a second narrative in her exhibition: multiple stories from contemporary rural women living on the U.S./Mexican border or in Vietnam, Africa, and Arkansas. Institute 193, a Lexington gallery, will exhibit the original Massengill family photographs."
