American photographer Tracy Meehleib will be featured artist this month at the Eyes on Main Street Gallery, located at 126-128 Goldsboro St. S.
Texas-born, California-raised and D.C.-based, Meehleib mainly focuses on street portraiture.
Her interest in photography started as a child, making portraits with a family Polaroid in the 1970s, and has continued throughout her life.
She shot with a public school loaner, a Mamiya twin-lens reflex in junior high and high school, bought an SLR in college and then a Hasselblad and a Leica, and now she photographs almost solely using an iPhone.
The work in this show was made with an iPhone X and Hipstamatic filters.
Main influences come from a number of photographers and collections that she has spent a lot of time with, especially photographers in the FSA-OWI and NAACP collections in the Library of Congress’ Prints & Photographs Division, where she worked as an image cataloger in the ’90s.
Meehleib photographs people and events close to her.
The work in this exhibition portrays a long and deep friendship with a close neighbor in her co-op and her involvement with recent social justice actions in her city, the nation’s capital.
Gallery hours at Eyes on Main Street are noon to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays.
