To celebrate a solo exhibit in New York’s Warehouse gallery and a group show in the Brighton Photo Biennial, Dr. Benjy Lowry and Shelly Gallender hosted a party and book signing in honor of celebrated New Orleans photographer and writer L. Kasimu Harris. Harris' story, "Ya-ka-mein: Old Sober" for Edible New Orleans was recently published in "Best Food Writing 2016." The story featured Chef Linda Green, the Ya-ka-mein Lady, who was on hand for the evening with her famously restorative dish.
