Mound City Chronicle Book Talk with Jason Gray
December 3, 2022, 11am-12pm CST
In-Person at IPHF
The International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum is located at 3415 Olive Street, St. Louis, MO 63103
Join us on December 3, 2022 from 11am-12pm to hear Jason Gray discuss his recent book, Mound City Chronicle. Mound City Chronicle is more than a series of images of St. Louis. It is testament to a path made through the city at this moment; a path meant to investigate my place and my impact here, and the history of those things (like the Mississippi River, cultural forces claim, carve away and redefine). The photographs tell the story of a journey that includes lost-and-found subterranean lakes and caves, sites removed from public view (due to security, secrecy or both), neighborhoods with buildings crumbling in ruin or of stately grace, and the people encountered, vibrant and varied.
Books will be available for purchase at this event, and after the talk there will be book signing.
