Swing by the Harvey Milk Photo Center (50 Scott Street) to check out the Nomadic Lives exhibit, on display through Saturday, January 14. Photographers Jamie Johnson and Norma I. Quintana chronicle the everyday lives of Irish travelers and an American one-ring circus.

Quintana is hosting an artist talk tonight, Thursday, January 12 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Center.

As documentarians, both photographers capture their subjects by embedding themselves in the community. Jamie Johnson has traveled to Ireland several times to understand the customs of a people who live on the margins of mainstream society. Johnson won Photographer of the Year 2021 for her work with the Irish Traveller children. Norma I. Quintana spent a decade following the same circus troop, observing artistic roles and relationships evolve. The show continues through January 23.
