Photography Exhibition



The New Britain Museum of American Art's photography exhibition ended in December, but I didn't find the time to show it.  Better late than never, right?

This is a detail from Lalla Essaydi's work Converging Territories #12 (on the left).  The Morocco-born photographer has lived in Saudi Arabia, France and New York, and her portrayals of women are influenced by her experiences in different cultures.

The young woman is studying two photographs by Sarah Austin and one by Dawoud Bey.  All three works deconstruct and reconstruct the images.




Finally, here is a series of abstract images created through photographic techniques that I could not begin to explain.  The artist-photographer is Ellen Carey.

Great exhibition. I always feel so exhilarated when I visit a museum, esp with artwork such as this. The detail of the larger piece is terrific.

Very creative photography. The digital age has made post-processing creativity so much more accessible to both professional artists and amateurs.

It's always fun and interesting to check out photography exhibits. Did you pick up any ideas to incorporate into HDP?
