Photographer Tina Freeman on Lamentations
Photographer and New Orleanian Tina Freeman’s exhibition Lamentations, currently at New Orleans Museum of Art through March 15, 2020, has drawn a great deal of attention. Its unique approach- a series of diptychs that juxtaposes marsh against glaciers - has received national press recently, and her work on interiors and landscapes continues to generate acknowledgement everywhere. But the subject of Lamentations - the point that the water that melts off the glaciers has to go somewhere, not unusually, the coastal marshes - reflects Tina’s strongest interest over the last few years. She joined WWNO's Karl Lengel to share her thoughts on that interest.
