Portland — PhoPa Gallery and Maine Media will present “Voices in Our Midst,” featuring work by Sean Alonzo Harris, beginning Wednesday, Jan. 17. The public is invited to an opening reception Thursday, Jan. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m.; and an artist talk Sunday, Feb. 18, from 2 to 3 p.m.

“Voices in Our Midst” is a collection of street photography and portraits taken in Portland and in New York City over the past few years. Harris’ work focuses on human experience and identity; his interest resides in telling the untold stories, speaking the forgotten voices and capturing personal histories through the photographic image.

Harris attended Art Institute of Boston and Maine Media Workshops in Rockport. His career is established in commercial, fine art and editorial photography in Maine, Boston and New York. Harris teaches photography at Maine Media Workshops, as well as through collaborative, community-driven projects with nonprofit organizations. He has received grants and awards from the Maine Arts Commission; recognition from the 121st Maine Legislature; and was named by Maine Magazine as one of the 60 Most Collectible Artists in Maine. His fine art photography is represented by Susan Maasch Fine Art in Portland.

The exhibition will be on view through March 3. PhoPa Gallery, 132 Washington Ave., is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. ​PhoPa Gallery is a collaboration among photographer Jon Edwards, independent curator Bruce Brown and Maine Media Workshops + College. A percentage of all sales are donated to MMW+C, a 501c3 nonprofit educational organization.
