Thelma Pepper may be gone but the legacy of her pictures lives on in the form of a book by author Amy Jo Ehman. Ehman spent hours with the photographer in 2019 combing through photo albums and listening to her stories. The result was Thelma Pepper: A Life In Pictures, a beautiful photo book that Ehman will be discussing Friday night. The event is being held as part of the Remai Modern’s Thelma Pepper: Ordinary Women A Retrospective which features many of the late photographers pieces. It’s free gallery members $10 if you are a non-member.
