Wednesday, June 20

6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Aperture Gallery and Bookstore 547 West 27th Street New York, NY



Aperture Members are invited to a private reception and screening with photographer and filmmaker RaMell Ross, who is featured in Aperture magazine #231, “Film & Foto.”

6:30 p.m. – Cocktail reception and exhibition viewing of RaMell Ross: South County, AL (A Hale County)

7:15 p.m. – Film introduction and remarks by RaMell Ross

Having lived, worked, and photographed in Hale County, Alabama, for almost ten years, Ross has produced a series of quietly powerful photographs–South County, AL (A Hale County)–that meditate on the myths of blackness in the American South.

Ross’s recent experimental documentary film extends his photographic practice. Hale County This Morning, This Evening (2018), which received a Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Award for Creative Vision, is composed of intimate and unencumbered moments of people in a community in Hale County, and offers an emotive impression of the Historic South.
