'Faces of Fishing' unveiled




Inspired by street artist JR's Inside Out Project, winner of the 2011 TED prize, community based artist Lauryn Axelrod has created "The Faces of Fishing," a public photographic art project in celebration of the local fishing industry and humanizing the complex issues of the industry in Homer. The project will be unveiled Sept. 10 in conjunction with TEDx Homer, with portraits posted on public outdoor walls around town. Through large-scale black and white photographs of those whose livelihoods depend on Homer's fishing industry, commercial and sport, the exhibit seeks to create a collaborative dialogue about Southcentral Alaska fishing rights and responsibilities. "Faces of Fishing" is co-sponsored by TEDx Homer and Bunnell Street Gallery.
