Be Still, A Storefront Church in Durham

Opening Reception

Related Member: Kristin Bedford

On Thursday, September 12, a reception for an exhibit of photographs by Kristin Bedford will be held on the Duke University campus, with remarks by MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts director Tom Rankin. Be Still: A Storefront Church in Durham features Bedford's images of Apostolic Deliverance Rebirth Outreach Ministries in Durham, North Carolina. "On a Sunday in July 2012, I attended a church service in the front room of a small storefront in East Durham," writes Bedford. "I was told that the church, led by the young Pastor Lonnie Dubois, had only started meeting the Sunday before. . . . I returned the following Sunday and asked if I could take photographs during the service. With the church's permission, I began what would become a ten-month exploration of this sanctuary. . . .
