Herb Snitzer photographs revisit St. Pete Pride

St. Pete Pride is the big event Saturday and Sunday. But keep in mind, when that ends, you can revisit the famous parade through the photographs of Herb Snitzer at Nuance Galleries in Tampa. For several years, he has documented the event, and a collection of about two dozen photographs will be on view along with vintage photographs of jazz greats and celebrities, all in his signature black-and-white prints. Snitzer, who is noted for those portraits, especially his intimate ones of jazz musicians, also has a long history of advocacy and action for social causes. He was involved in the civil rights movement early on, for example. He isn't a didactic photographer, though; there's a lot of heart that comes through the camera lens. Nuance, 804 S Dale Mabry Highway, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Free. nuancegalleries.com or (813) 875-0511.
