Kurisu describes a series of three pictures in the same format of little babies, in chairs in the lawn, or on a blanket in the lawn. "It's the kind of photo that everybody takes of their baby in every decade," she says. "You don't even have to know who it is; you don't have to know who that baby is or know their name or who took the photo, and you can kind of appreciate that human impulse. It becomes timeless.

Spady Cultural Heritage Museum. There will be an open-to-the-public reception at 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 17.

"The people that we photographed in particular are people who are business owners and pastors and police officers; they've held somewhat public roles and to some extent have been acknowledged throughout their lives. But where they came from, and many of the other members of their family might come from, might be quiet lives that nobody ever writes about, and I hope that this exhibit also reminds you of that," Kurisu continues. "You don't have to be black, you don't have to have a huge family, you don't have to know these people to appreciate what they've done and the value of family and legacy."
