Popopstudios and the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas present the exhibition “Bright Lights & Raw Gems—Portraits from The Bahamian Project,” which features high-quality portrait images of Bahamians “whose character reflects the true beauty of The Bahamas.” It opens on July, 6, 2017, at 6:00pm, at the Central Bank of The Bahamas Art Gallery.
Description: The Bahamian Project was created by Duke and Lisa Wells in 2012 in collaboration with Popopstudios and the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. Over the past four years, Bahamian Project photographers have created more than 130 high-quality portraits that capture the character of people whose lives have helped shape the heart and soul of The Bahamas.
The portraits tell the story of people from all walks of life, throughout the Islands of The Bahamas. Some of the portraits are of people who are well-known social and cultural icons (Bright Lights). But the Bahamian Project also includes portraits of unique individuals who, while not as well-known, have lead lives that define the essence of Bahamian society (Raw Gems).
