Get to see up and close the work of renowned photographers at Snap! Orlando’s  upcoming exhibitions: “T I M E L E S S,” “Gotta Go, Gotta Flow,” and “Life-As-Is.” The show opens on Friday, March 22 from 7 – 10 p.m. followed by an artist talk on Saturday, March 23, 2024.

GALLERY 1 : T I M E L E S S  by Mochilla | B+ and Eric Coleman

Experience a collection by prominent L.A. photographers Brian “B+” Cross and Eric Coleman. Teamed up under the name Mochilla, the two collaborated to create a vibrant photography series that documents the iconic West Coast rap and hip-hop musicians, lifestyle, and culture. 

Brian “B+” Cross documented artists such as David Axelrod, Jurassic 5, Rza, Madlib, Dilated Peoples, Mos Def, Damian Marley, and Q-Tip. His 1993 book, It’s Not About a Salary: Rap Race and Resistance, was one of the first to chronicle the burgeoning West Coast hip-hop scene. 

Eric Coleman’s unique style of photography, which places two distinct moments in time side-by-side, tells a story with visuals alone. He has photographed artists such Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Terrence Howard, Fergie (Black Eyed Peas), DJ Shadow, Faith Evans, and MF Doom.

GALLERY 2 : Gotta Go, Gotta Flow by Michael Abramson

See a collection of black and white photography chronicling the energetic nightlife of Chicago’s South Side in the ‘70s. Michael L. Abramson (1948-2011) was an American photographer best known for his striking black and white photographs documenting the vibrant nightlife of Chicago’s South Side during the mid-1970s. His photographs can be found in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, and the California Museum of Photography.

GALLERY 3 : Life-As-Is by Lauren Withrow

Photography that touches on themes of growing up queer in the South, how that intermingles with womanhood, and human connection. Born and raised in a small farming town in Texas, Lauren Withrow began photographing at the age of 15. Now based out of L.A., she focuses her work on documenting stories, places, and creating cinematic worlds that dive into personal feelings of growing up queer, the expectations of womanhood, and the relationships we share with others.
