An exploration of home, community service and legacy.
“We Are Here” centers images and stories of long-time Bed-Stuy residents, cementing their place as neighborhood icons in the name of resilience and permanence. It features photographs by Robyn Twomey and interviews by Monica L. Williams. We would print life size photos of each interview participant.
Robyn Twomey is an international freelance photographer, mother of two and former Bed-Stuy gentrifier. Her work has been exhibited at the Luggage Store Gallery, The Patricia Sweetow Gallery, SF Camerawork and the SF Arts Commission. Her documentary portraiture stories are her way to open our personal understanding of one another and dare a deeper human connection.
Bailey’s Cafe presents As Quiet As It’s Kept (AQAIK), a multi-discipline performance installation based on the stories of veterans of color and their role in a changing community under the artistic direction of Monica L. Williams in collaboration with artists from various genres.
