Award winning photographer Pete Marovich will show selections from his exhibit entitled Shadows of the Gullah Geechee. Marovich’s photographs explore the lives and culture of the Gullah Geechee people in communities from Hog Hammock on Sapelo Island, Ga. to Mosquito Beach on Sol Legare Island, SC. His work captures everyday moments of work, play, worship, and resilience to increasing pressures from real estate developments for the ever-expanding population growth in the Lowcountry. Marovich will be on hand to engage and discuss the 20 selected images of his work with visitors.
Seventeen of Marovich’s stunning black and white images are part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
