Soul of Soul: Capturing A Movement
Sight+Sound Gallery
Featuring work by: Shannon McCollum

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 13, to Sat, Nov 9 2013

The 1990s was a relentlessly thrilling time to be in Atlanta. The city, with its burgeoning flock of industries executives, was in the midst of becoming an outpost of the commercial music industry. At the same time, there was a significant underground soul music scene building. In clubs and bars across the city, an ebullient group of young musicians, singers, producers, visual artists and listeners were breathing new life into traditional soul music by blending elements of classic soul with hip hop, jazz, afrobeat, house and indigenous music from the African Diaspora. It was one of those fleeting moments when a city is just accessible enough, just undiscovered enough, to allow something unique to grow and take hold.

Photographer Shannon McCollum began documenting these moments in the 90s, and has continued to amass photographic chronology of Atlanta’s neo soul scene as it’s grown from a fresh stirring to a long-rooted roar.

Soul of Soul: Capturing A Movement is curated by Leatrice Ellzy for Beatrix Moss, A Cultural Curation Firm.
