Garden City photographer signs her new book ‘Missoula Rabble’ on Friday
Gifted Missoula photographer, and an old Kaimin co-worker of mine, Ashley McKee releases her new photography book titled “Missoula Rabble,” on Friday at the Blaque Owl Tattoo in Missoula. The signing is from 5 to 8 p.m.
“Missoula Rabble,” according to its successful Kickstarter campaign page, is, “a collection of portraits and blurbs of the unique people that make up the charming community of Missoula, Montana.”
McKee said she created the book after taking , “over a hundred photographs of random strangers in Missoula and told their story through my interviews and writing. I have received an incredibly encouraging and positive response from the community of Missoula. I want to turn Missoula Rabble into a book so these photographs of people during this time don’t get lost in space.”
There will also be an art display of portraits and blurbs on the walls on Friday, also, along with food and drinks.
It also might be one of the last chances to visit with the talented photographer, as McKee is soon moving to Austin, Texas to, “pursue more opportunity to learn more about my craft and pursue my business as a career as well as try some more street photography in a different place,” she said.
By the end of June, McKee raised more than $10,500 to produce and distribute her book through Milltown Press, a local publishing company in Missoula.
