Gregory Halpern – ‘Confederate Moons’

Gregory Halpern’s series ‘Confederate Moons’  – a journey inspired by the total eclipse of the sun in August, 2017, to explore “the drama of that celestial coincidence intersected with the moments of life that directly preceded and followed it that year… The work ultimately became more of a meditation on the American South, on the state of the nation, and on the things that separate us and bring us together. I was fascinated by the idea that the entire nation was staring at the sun, reveling in the apocalyptic thrill of watching the moon temporarily extinguish our life-source, all together.”
