Sean Alonzo Harris: Voices in Our Midst

Voices in Our Midst is a collection of street photography and portraits by Sean Alonzo Harris taken in Portland, Maine and New York City over the past few years. Harris’ work focuses on human experience and identity and is informed by the stories of those who have gone before us and those who move among us each day. His interest resides in telling the untold stories, speaking the forgotten voices and capturing personal histories through the photographic image.

The photographic document serves to “reclaim and revitalize our connection with each other and the past, that long line of ancestors who have gone before us.” The individual voices and personal histories captured in the images reframe their past and present as part of us. The photographs extend beyond presence; they record thoughts and feelings and provide evidence of their lives.
