Photographic Partnership Supports City’s 300th Anniversary
By Jake Gaines Photography by Vincent Quarentino of Super Q Photography
THE SCENE: Recently, a hip loft-style building in downtown San Antonio served as the launch venue for Uniform 300, a collaboration with photographer Rahm Carrington, curator/producer Alice Carrington Foultz and JP Morgan Chase. The massive photographs were installed about the party space as guests mingled with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Jason Molchanow, Curator for JPMorgan Chase, gave a talk about the inception of the project. He explained how San Antonio citizens submitted their names, and about 130 were photographed, 50 of which were on display.
THE VIBE: The creative collaboration between the mother and son Foultz-Carrington coincided with San Antonio’s Tricentennial Celebration. In fact, Uniform 300 depicts the diversity of San Antonians following the six pillars of the Tricentennial: Religion, Military, History & Education, Arts & Culture, World Heritage, and Community Service. The project features portraits of mostly San Antonio citizens representing all neighborhoods, passions, jobs and walks of life. In fact, The Society Diaries’ very own Lance Avery Morgan and Eleanora Morrison were honored to be photographer as part of the project.
After the launch event, the San Antonio Public Library hosted the Uniform 300 exhibit, on display at multiple city library locations. Learn more about the individuals who appeared in the photographs by tuning into the duo’s podcast, Uniform 300 on SoundCloud.
