Paolo Morales will share several projects that describe a photographic preoccupation with the ways people appear alone, sometimes lonely, and desperately seek to connect to others. From the work he created as a graduate student photographing a family in Providence, to his current project in Philadelphia titled Memphis Tulips, Paolo will describe the path he took in his professional life as a teacher and how that influenced his work as a photographer.
