I was rearranging and looking back into the void of some old backup hard drives the other day. I ran across some images that I snapped when a couple friends and I randomly road-tripped to Memphis, TN.
I saw these two images an thought that they might bode themselves well to the “formula” that I have been using lately. Although they were never shot with the intent to be displayed together, I though it just might work.
The Lorraine Hotel is the site of The Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, and the spot where the world lost a great leader, Martin Luther King, Jr.
The man in the image is the Reverend Samuel “Billy” Kyles, a close friend of MLK and was present that fateful day.
We had just watched a documentary ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBe4VnpCSwY ) at the museum and learned that the witness of 306 was at the museum.
It was a privilege to meet this great, articulate man…
