As our world becomes increasingly saturated with images, virtually every meaningful moment from birth to death is captured on camera, be it on video, mobile, digital, or film. This abundance of imagery, and the fleeting moments with which we consume it, can cause us to lose sight of the story and the emotions behind each image.
For our annual community show, Behind the Portrait, we asked photographers to submit meaningful portraits accompanied by a short story illustrating what’s behind the portrait. The resulting work and their stories demand the viewer to gaze deeper into the life of the subject, as well as the moment in which they’ve been captured.
We invite you to our latest exhibition Behind the Portrait, which combines photography with text, spoken word, and video, opening September 13th at 7pm.
