DESCRIPTION

These portraits — from the Bank of America Collection — feature a series of 14 photographs of the senior sisters of Birmingham, Alabama’s New Pilgrim Baptist Church. Canadian photographer Julie Moos captures a generation of women who have been active citizens, church members and civil rights activists. In her signature style, she invites the viewer to compare individuals through an unrestrained formalism that asks us to see the equality of all people.
