SEVEN-TIME MILITARY PHOTOJOURNALIST OF THE YEAR, JEREMY T. LOCK BRINGS TWENTY-ONE TO ONE ARTS PLAZA
Exhibit features thought-provoking images capturing the tragedies, celebrations and everyday realities of our world
DALLAS (February 9, 2015) — Award winning photojournalist and seven-time Military Photojournalist of the Year, Jeremy T. Lock, opens his first public photography exhibit in the lobby of One Arts Plaza in Dallas' Arts District on February 10, 2015.
The photographic series Twenty-One is a showcase of Lock's favorite twenty-one thought- provoking images that encapsulate his twenty-one years of service as a combat photographer. Lock embeds himself into the tragedies, celebrations, and everyday realities of the world around him. The twenty-one images selected are powerful, and implore viewers to live and feel those moments just as Lock did when they were captured.
"My photographic journey is rooted in my ability to capture the essence and reality of humanity at its finest and at its worst," says Lock. "I've captured everything from the hunt for Osama bin Laden, to the playful nature of our young military who are defending our freedom, and the plight of humans in search of food after the Haiti earthquake disaster."
Lock is not only an accomplished military veteran receiving the Bronze Star Medal for distinguished service in Iraq, his experience as a seasoned photojournalist have led to his work being published in magazines, newspapers and books including National Geographic, Time, New York Times, The Washington Post among others. His work has also earned multiple awards from prestigious organizations including World Press Photo, National Press Photographers Association and Oasis.
The exhibit, on display until Sunday, March 22, captures every step that Lock has taken, camera in hand, steadily and skillfully documenting what we might not otherwise ever see. "There is more to the world than what is outside your front door," says Lock. Twenty-One opens the minds of viewers and reminds those that see each piece of the importance of sharing our experiences.
For visitors to the Arts District, One Arts Plaza offers free garage parking after 5 p.m. with restaurant validation on weekdays and all day on weekends. Surface parking is also available for $5 or valet parking is available for $5 with restaurant validation.
