‘Neighbors’ photos on display at Muskegon museum

"Neighbors: Photography by David and Kathy Myers' is on exhibit at the Muskegon Museum of Art, 296 W. Webster Ave., through Nov. 6. The Myerses traveled to 27 cities, villages and townships in the Muskegon County to capture the telling images in the exhibition. The photographs link the similarities between residents, while managing to also emphasize their individualities.

The photographs featured in the exhibition reference an early 20th-century custom in which Americans had their pictures taken in front of the family home, car, barn or other prized possession. Those portraits gave a glimpse into what life was like for the subjects beyond the moment captured in the picture.

A catalogue illustrated with the “Neighbors” photographs will be available for purchase at the museum’s Gift Store during the exhibition’s run.

David Myers will discuss how the exhibition took shape when he leads a gallery walk at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7.
