‘What I Keep: Photographs’ @ The 930

Through March 6

The 930
930 Mary St. • 635-2554

What is your most valued personal treasure, the one that says the most about who you are, once were or want to be? Photographer Susan Mullally asked that question to a number of impoverished people who, by definition, have very little. “I collaborate with members of The Church Under the Bridge in Waco, Texas,” says Mullally, “a non-denominational, multi-cultural Christian church that has been meeting under Interstate 35 for 16 years. I ask each person what he or she keeps, and why it is valued.”

The resulting 60-plus full-size portraits, taken over a four-year period, reveal it’s the simple things, such as a cowboy hat or a watch, that make life a little more livable. A coffee table book of the “What I Keep” photographs was published in 2010. —Jo Anne Triplett
