Maitland's Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center announced the opening of a new photographic exhibit this week, Uprooting Prejudice: Faces of Change.

The exhibition consists of photographs taken by Minneapolis photographer John Noltner – whose work has appeared in National Geographic and Smithsonian – following the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.

A couple of days after protests began in Minneapolis, Noltner went to the intersection of Chicago and 38th – where Floyd had been killed – set up some makeshift gear, took portraits of protesters and conducted brief interviews. The combination of these words and images make up the 45 pieces in Uprooting Prejudice.

“Historical wounds are deep. In all the heated rhetoric of the day, we forget to listen," said Noltner in a press statement. "I hope that through these stories and these faces, you can understand the events of our day in a new way. I hope you can challenge some of your own preconceptions and I hope you can see the humanity of each and every person.”

Uprooting Prejudice: Faces of Change is open through Jan. 31, 2021, and reservations are required. For information on hours of operation and a link to reserve, click here.
