This past week, I went to Atlanta with my parents. While there, we went to the High Museum of Art, where I saw two amazing photography shows: a comprehensive overview of the work of twentieth century documentary photographer Walker Evans and a major retrospective of the work of contemporary artist Vik Muniz.
The permanent collection was also amazing. I loved these pieces by Jean Michel Basquiat, Anna Betbeze, and outsider artist Howard Finster.
I also went to the Civil Rights Museum and took a tour of of Martin Luther King, Jr's birthplace. With the deaths of so many Black Americans this year, learning more about the history of civil rights in the US felt extremely poignant. The murals that line the streets are powerful reminders of the progress we have made, as well as reminders of how much work there is to be done.
On my trip, I also had the most amazing arepas from Arepa Mia (they were so good that I went back two more times!) and got to visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden, although a lot of the exhibits were closed when we got there.
I love looking back at travel photos and seeing a color palette emerge. I love how the dry creams, corals, and tans contrast with the deep greens, blues and turquoises.
