This month PhotoLounge has partnered with the PHL Black Women's March for their upcoming event Femme Noire: A Photo Gallery Celebrating Divine Black Women.
We are the official print lab for the exhibit, offering all participating photographers free print consultations and making prints of their photos for the show. Go and see the show on March 11th from 4-8pm at Our House Culture Center (6380 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19144). Here is more information about the show:
Femme Noire, a collaboration between the Philadelphia Black Women’s March and local photographer Julian Moore-Griffin, will explore and uplift the various identities of Black Women through the lens of 8 local photographers. Featured photographers will display a collection of photos that spotlight Black Women and Black Womanhood. Photographers will also showcase photos from other bodies of work. Live musical performances, light bites and beverages will be available for guests in attendance.
A portion of Femme Noire’s ticket proceeds will be donated to Lil Filmmakers Inc., a non-profit organization founded by Janine Spruill. Lil Filmmakers Inc. provides young artists hands-on exposure to the filmmaking process. Janine has worked with children and young adults for more than 10 years. Over 3,000 students have participated, including Julian Moore-Griffin, a former member of the Lil Filmmakers Inc.’s young adult program, Guideline Media.
Femme Noire has two ticket options available for purchase; a $10 general admission and a $15 donation ticket, which include a $5 donation to Lil’ Filmmakers Inc. Registration for Femme Noire is available now!
The Philadelphia Black Women’s March is organized by India Fenner, a Philadelphia native and Temple University Graduate. India’s passion for activism and representation led her to organize the first Philadelphia Black Women’s March in 2017. From 2017 to 2021, the March has unified hundreds of Black Women and girls in impactful protest and has garnered over $3,500 in support from local organizations, politicians and community leaders. Femme Noire commemorates the 4th Annual Philadelphia Black Women’s March on September 18, 2021.
Julian Moore-Griffin began his photography journey in 2017 as a sports marketing intern at Bloomsburg University. His scope of photography now encompasses street, concert, portraiture and documentary photography. Julian is a featured photojournalist having written and photographed for 12 articles in the historical Philadelphia Tribune.
We are very excited to be supporting this show and hope you will join us in seeing it on March 11th from 4-8pm at Our House Culture Center (6380 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19144).
