Lush Cosmetics presents Hal Samples' Samples of Society
Hal Samples, a photographer, artist, and filmmaker originally from Dallas, has some remarkable tales to tell. Through his recent collaboration with Lush Cosmetics and Gorilla Perfumes, Hal has continued exploring the power of relationships, the meaning of home, and thoughtfully transformed his work into Samples of Society, a documentary series about hope and life-changing experiences.
The Stewpot in Encore Park was ground zero for Samples, and where he first picked up a camera over 15 years, giving a voice to those who are often overlooked and unheard. Hal returns to share his new work in collaboration with Lush. This edition of Samples of Society is focused on Dallas, but the story runs much deeper. A Q&A will follow the screening with Lush Cosmetics head perfumer and head of buying Simon Constantine, and Hal Samples, who mutually developed fragrances and olfactory art based on some of Hal’s experiences.
There will be light refreshments, and the Museum of Street Culture will offer guided tours of its remarkable new exhibit “Looking for Home: A Yearlong Focus on the Work of Mary Ellen Mark.”
