The award-winning photographer, Missy Burton, recently showcased her latest photographic series at the African American Museum of Dallas. Called “Dynasty: The Peculiar Search for Totality,” the exhibit features photography, poetry, history, and augmented reality to present the story of one family’s ancestral journey to freedom.
“My inspiration comes from my perception of the effects of social influences on human rights. It is often described as emotional, edgy & audacious. I invite the viewer to approach my photographs with curiosity and be open to a strong connection with these images and the stories behind them,” said Missy Burton.
Sanaa, an app created by Gregg Young, has helped Burton bring her images to life. Sanaa, Swahili for ‘Art’ or more specifically a “work of beauty,” helps create an immersive user experience for art using augmented reality.
Missy Burton is also the Co-founder of Msanii HOUS Fine Art, and her work features in the permanent collection of the African American Museum of Dallas and several other private collections.
Art and augmented reality enthusiasts can catch a glimpse of “Dynasty: The Peculiar Search for Totality” at the African American Museum of Dallas through June 12th. The museum currently operates on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 12 to 5 PM.
