Photographer Matt Herron photographed the Selma to Montgomery march in 1965. He talked about his work in Selma and about his decision to go to the South to document the Civil Rights Movement during a visit to Syracuse Unviersity earlier this week.

Photographer Matt Herron made some of the most iconic images of the  Selma to Montgomery march in 1965. He talked about his work in the South and about his decision to document the Civil Rights Movement during a visit to Syracuse University on Monday. Tonight he will give a lecture at Art Rage Gallery.

On this 50th Anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery,we are thankful to have seen these photos taken by Matt Herron. The photos are on display at Art Rage Gallery and Herron will be giving a talk on March 25. We captured this video during a visit to the gallery last month. Loved the music (chosen by Ryan Travis for the play “Steady”)

Alena Cerro and Kamani Grate act out a dream sequence scene in Steady (a play coneived by Ryan Hope Travis and inspired by the March from Selma to Montgomery).

As a director Ryan Travis is prolific. He has conceived and directed numerous productions since we interviewed him a few years ago.

Ryan’s pace is frenetic, but the quality of the work never suffers.  The actor/director/professor knows how to explore and present timely topics with the right dusting of theatrical polish. His latest offering is “Steady,” an hour-long, song-dialogue-dance-dramatization of the past, present and future of Civil Rights, with a particular emphasis on the 54-mile march from Selma to Montgomery.

There were two shows for “Steady” over the weekend at The Art Rage Gallery.  What made the Art Rage production unique was the poignant visual reminder of the Selma adorning the walls, thanks to the compelling documentary photographs of Matt Herron.  Having photos of Dr. King, John Lewis, Doris Wilson, and others as part of the set design provided inspiration for the audience as well as the actors.

“Steady”  has its next showing at Onondaga Community College on Monday.

Herron’s images will be on display at Art Rage until the end of March.
