Paris was born in Atlanta, GA, but at some point, has called Washington, Colorado, and California home. She has been photographing since she was 12-years-old when her father gave her a small Instamatic camera. She has continued the practice, but the cameras have changed. Several of her photographic projects have focused on community members in a small town (Sewanee, TN) and prisoners on Tennessee’s death row (with fellow Watkins professor Tom Williams.) Their work with prisoners has resulted in 11 exhibitions, including one at Apexart in New York. That work has also been featured in The Guardian, El Pais, Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, and many other publications.
Moses Williams was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and grew up in Nashville. He received his BFA from Watkins and an MFA from Carnegie-Mellon University. Williams works at the intersection of performance, sculpture, video, and sound to question dominant cultural expectations, institutions, and ideology. He has exhibited and performed throughout the U.S. and Europe and has collaborated with The Nashville Ballet and Alias Chamber Ensemble. His work also includes collaborations with the residents of Unit 2 (the Death Row unit) at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution.
