Tom Styrkowicz Snaps Community Portraits for Open Spaces

It isn’t every day that one of the most celebrated photographers in a city takes powerful photographs of the people who inhabit a city instead of the movers and shakers that run the city. But for Kansas City’s Open Spaces event, photographer Tom Styrkowicz will train his lens on the people that breathe life into Kansas City using a portable location studio and the ability to quickly capture someone’s unique life essence. For two days—Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14  from noon to 5:45 p.m.—Styrkowicz will take a series of “One by One Community Portraits” in a temporary studio in Swope Park. The visitor to the exhibition can have his or here portrait taken and will receive one free copy of the photograph as a souvenir. The other photos taken on those days will be featured as part of a “Community Portrait Wall” expected to have as many 1,400 individual portraits of the men and women who make Kansas City a great place to be.
