“From the streets of New Orleans to a packed house in New York, Mark Lee Webb captures musical conversations on-stage and whispered conversations off-stage in PLAY IT COOL—a new collection of images of jazz musicians and their audiences. The Queen of Royal Street in The French Quarter. An unknown sax player in the same Kansas City building a young Charlie Parker once played. An intimate conversation at a corner table in New York. Spontaneous moments from jazz venues in New Orleans, Kansas City, New York, Louisville, Cincinnati, and Washington, DC. are featured in this new collection of photographs.”
Join us to hear Mark Lee Webb speak about his exhibition at fifteenTwelve Creative Compound, “Play It Cool”, as part of the Louisville Photo Biennial.
After the talk, Mark will lead the group in a photography workshop and critique session. You should bring your laptop (battery fully charged) and up to 5 photographs saved to your laptop for the critique session.

Featuring Scotty Perry
Dates: September 1 – September 28, 2021
“Here” is a story of living with dementia and loss at the end of life told from the perspective of the caregiver. Scotty moved in with his grandparents as their primary caregiver when he received a call that his grandmother had fallen ill and his grandfather, who had progressive dementia, was no longer able to care for her. The story is about finding what you are looking for when you can’t remember what it is you lost.
Scott Perry is a photographer based in Louisville, KY who focuses on social issues, societal norms, and the human condition. He is known for his ability to capture stories and connect the audience with his photography on a deep level.
