Photographer Keris Salmon conjures the voices of slavery’s past at Arnika Dawkins

“Viewers walk away with recognition of how difficult it is, in the South and elsewhere, to live amidst the historical memories that some recognize as violent and others experience as nostalgia. It’s safe to say that this is history’s charge — to make us critical of the past as much as we are reflective of it. It’s for this reason that the “we” of Salmon’s title is pointed at no one in particular but calls us all to ruminate on how we move about history and what we are doing with that reflection.”

-from my ArtsATL review of Keris Salmon’s solo show, We Have Made These Lands What They Are
