Brookfield presents Louise Ozelle Martin photography exhibition opening day
Houstonian Louise Martin spent her lifetime documenting the African American community of Houston through the lens of her camera. Whether it was a pageant, wedding, community event or family portrait, Martin was the society photographer for Houston’s African American community from the 1950s through 1980s.
This retrospective exhibit of her photographs will walk visitors through her outstanding career, which includes being one of only two female photographers with press credentials to cover the funeral of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until April 20.
