Almost 100 Selma residents stopped by Southland Studios in downtown Selma last week to get their portrait taken by a French photographer in town for a photo exhibit this weekend.

French photographer Stephane Kossmann, who has photographed stars at Canne Film Festivals, had a portrait studio set up to capture images of anyone who stopped in, from families to fellow photographers.

Kossmann wants to bring the community together through photos. A sample of the local photos will be shows during the first Photographic Nights of Selma held Oct. 24 and 25 at Arts Revive. Other photographers’ work will be on display throughout downtown on Saturday as part of the exhibit.
