Throughout his decades long career, Durham artist Titus Brooks Heagins has explored issues of class, race, and culture in his acclaimed photographs. This exhibition will showcase Heagins’ latest body of work titled Rorschach in which the artist takes stripped down portraits of people in his own community as a means of transforming cultural norms of beauty. A workshop held at Chavis Community Center on Saturday, September 17, will provide an opportunity for the community to engage with Heagins and his process.
