The Sound Crickets Make

Parsons School of Design MFA Photography 2023

Challenging the notion that photography begins and ends with some sort of physical or digital material that has frozen a moment in time. The work in this exhibition, like reading love poems, like remembering what a cricket sounds like, awakens all of our senses and requires us to consider what lies beyond the frame. Whether it’s to reckon with our personal history and how it shapes our relationship to gender and our ever changing state of becoming. Or intervening with the archive as a political strategy, attempting to shield those historically vulnerable to photography’s colonialist ethnographic practices. Or to further complicate our understanding of the true importance of representation and visibility.

Reception: August 24th (Thursday) 6-8PM
