“Untitled Exhibit” (c)2016
Peter Nakhid, photographer
Publisher’s Exhibition Message:
As a continuation of part one of his work presented in the spring 2015 issue, Peter Nakhid further explores his keen ability to find the human element and poignancy inherent in the ongoing legacy of people of African descent. Nakhid’s astute eye for color, movement, and theme enables him to capture the relevance, vitality, and cultural significance of festivities that are contextual reminders of centuries of wisdom and perseverance passed down from one generation to the next. He is not simply a documentarian though that is one of the things that he does well, and that talent has earned him international recognition. Peter’s Caribbean background and life in the dynamic cross-cultural melting pot of New Orleans has immersed him into a vortex of creativity and expression that he captures with a camera only after his eye recognizes the significance of the moment. His “untitled” exhibition articulates and visualizes passion, emotion, and the subtle intricacies of telling a story without words.
