Brookfield Properties presents a retrospective of works from African American photographer Louise Martin. On display from February 7 – April 20, 2018, at One Allen Center.
Houstonian Louise Martin spent her lifetime documenting the African American community of Houston through the lens of her camera. Whether it was a pageant, wedding, community event, or family portrait, Martin was the society photographer for Houston’s African American community from the 1950s through 1980s.
In this exhibition presented by Brookfield Properties at One Allen Center in downtown Houston, a retrospective exhibit of her photographs will walk visitors through the outstanding career of Martin, which includes being one of only two female photographers with press credentials to cover the funeral of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Curated by Sally Reynolds, the exhibition will be on display from as part of Brookfield Properties’ commitment to presenting free, world-class cultural experiences in their premier buildings.
