Why We are Here


Why We Are Here: Mobile and the Spirit of a Southern City

October 5, 2012 – January 6, 2013

Why we are here is not only the title of this exhibition, but also a mantra I kept repeating to myself as I took pictures in and around Mobile. With this quote in mind I saw that my photographs could be about a particular people and a unique American city and its landscapes, while at the same time portraying something larger: the deeply human impulse to tell a story with our lives, a story connected to place. – Alex Harris
