Local photographers’ work on display in March

Published 1:06 am Saturday, March 5, 2016


Evanescent, a show featuring the work of local photographers Rebecca Cory and Stephanie Moceri, is currently on display at LAAC’s The Gallery.

The word means “in the moment,” and perfectly captures the contrasts on display in the two photographers’ work.

Moceri, who is an administrative assistant for the City of Andalusia, is displaying landscapes.

“Mine are exactly the way they look, but in that moment,” Moceri explained.



Cory’s contributions to this show are exactly opposite.

“Hers are a documentary of sorts about our generation’s work ethics. She photographed themen in our generation who still work with their hands, with what they have,” Moceri explained. “It is the opposite of what everybody thinks is happening, and it is ongoing in our Southern culture.”

“Evanescent” ties it together with one word,” Moceri said, “which is why we did that. I saw the word, and the definition, and a lightbulb went off.”

The two young women have been lifelong friends.

“We grew up together,” Moceri said. “Our dads were best friends, and we are basically family. We call each other cousins.”



Moceri also has a pet photography business, and Cory, who works at Pac-N-Ship, photographs people.

All of the works in the show are printed on canvas and are for sale.

The Lower Alabama Art Council will hold a reception to open the show from 1:30 p.m. until 3 p.m. this Sun., March 6. The exhibit will be on display through March.

LAAC hours are Tuesday-Friday from noon until 5:30 p.m.
