14 July 2021 (New Orleans, LA) JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY is pleased to announce Alternatively Free, the premiere solo exhibition of artist Trenity Thomas - the grand prize award recipient of the 2020 NO DEAD ARTISTS exhibition. In ‘Alternatively Free’, self taught photographer and New Orleans native Trenity Thomas explores the intersections between his imagination and reality. Thomas’ striking portraiture and street photography is surreal, yet vivid and grounded. His photographs are not scenes being remembered but directly experienced. The artist draws inspiration from horror and film noir to reimagine and create narratives that are foreboding and brimming with mystery and intrigue. His subjects are not merely figures, but characters whose personalties and stories are unspoken yet intimately felt by the viewer, fully alive. Through fashion, nightlife, portraiture, and editorial photographs, we are invited into Thomas’ rich perspective of the cultural landscape of New Orleans. The relationships between the subjects are warm and personal and the individuals portrayed in these images feel familiar, but leave the viewer wanting to know more.

Artist ( Description ): 

In this series of work, I am taking a step out of reality to create visual stories through photography. Consistently pulling ideas from my imagination and things that are in front of me allows me to create my own world. Watching movies and having conversations with my peers, who are also artists, inspires me in this world of mine. Accepting who I am becoming and realizing that my choices are unique makes me the person I am today. Being alternatively free gives me permission to be creative. Knowing there’s always an option and no limitations.
