OKLAHOMA CITY -

A photography exhibit showcasing what Oklahoma City looks like through the eyes of individuals experiencing homelessness will be on display beginning Thursday. 

The exhibit titled “How I see OKC” will be open to the public May 21 through May 31 at A.K.A. Gallery in the Paseo District.

Local professional photographers were paired with homeless and formerly homeless vendors from The Curbside Chronicle and asked to capture pictures of Oklahoma City from the perspective of someone experiencing homelessness, according to event organizers. 

“These pictures seek to open people's eyes to what people who are homeless see on a daily basis and locally raise awareness for the issue of homelessness in OKC,” said Ranya O'Connor, editor for The Curbside Chronicle.

“How I See OKC” will be on display for the public to view at A.K.A. Gallery, at 3001 Paseo, with an opening reception May 21 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and during the Paseo Arts Festival throughout Memorial Day weekend.

The homeless and formerly homeless photographers will be present at the opening reception and during the festival to give details and help guide attendees through their photographs. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the photos will go to the homeless or formerly homeless photographers.

“How I See OKC” is collaboration between two social service agencies in Oklahoma City, The Curbside Chronicle and Upward Transitions.
