Waking Detroit

Nicholas Gregory & Deonte Osayande, Detroit Story-tellers

Brilliantly crafted poetry and photographs will take you on a contemplative journey to examine Detroit’s place in this world. Three to five groups of compelling photographs taken by experienced photographer Nicholas Gregory will be centered around verse written by award-winning Detroit poet Deonte Osayande. Waking Detroit is a title that holds several meanings. Wake means to be active and to stay alert as well as to watch over. Both artists will compose pieces based on differing perspectives, shared goals and work inspired from one another. We offer raw and authentic expression intended to generate feelings and encourage dialogue. The display will be creative, imaginative and true to our mission to help people discover the beautiful complexity of Detroit through a moving exhibit. This portfolio includes past work with several images that will not be included in the final project. Many pictures for this project will be taken in July and August 2013 to complete our body of work.
