Trauma by Manuela Thames
This self-portrait series aims to explore the themes of brokenness, the struggles of loss and grief, the regrets of past decisions and my personal experiences with generational trauma and mental health struggles. I was raised in Germany by parents who were born in the 1930s and both experienced significant trauma as children and young adults due to World War II.
World Around by Joseph Rafferty
Showing us things in our psyche - my project, World Around, is constructed within my home during this global pandemic, using my own children as case study subjects. The narrative is built from my own parental reality, something with uncertain outcome, the anxiety and apprehension of navigating through this invisible thing, coronavirus. This body of work explores the terrifying uncertainty of raising children with my partner, a clinical psychologist, through the strange times of COVID-19.
The Persistence of Family by Diana Cheren Nygren
During the isolation resulting from the pandemic, family has taken on a new centrality. Our connections to our ancestors and our descendants often feel stronger than connections to those around us. I often wish my children knew my grandparents. These are portraits of my children as the product of a history of lives lived and intertwined, each effecting and shaping the other.
The Surge of Women Photographers in Paris between WWI and WWII
In the aftermath of the Great War (WWI), several women embraced photography. And Paris, a key crossroads of the avant-garde, became a fundamental meeting place for many women artists who came from various backgrounds and countries.
The Melancholic Aesthetic of Urban Decay by Raju Peddada IV
Decay, is a process with no cessation, an unstoppable process that includes all organic life, as well as the inorganic. From the time you are delivered, you are absorbed into the process of decay, all the way through to your demise, at which point, whether you are buried, cremated, or mummified, you will return back to the base elements from which you were created. On our walks with our him, we used to observe the conquest of decay over an iron plate.
Last Night I Dreamt I Knew How to Swim by Natalie Christensen
The first pool I remember was the one I fell into as a small child. It was at an apartment complex that my young parents lived in. I recall falling in, opening my eyes, and seeing the color of the water and the reflection of sunlight shimmering in my field of vision. My mother pulled me out. I was around four years old. Eventually I became a good enough swimmer and spent the summers of my childhood and adolescence in any pool I could find.
Mother Earth by Lily Glass
Connections between earth and woman can be found in the language commonly used in reference to each (fertile, virgin, bearing fruit, barren, rape, pillage, drill), which focus solely on either's ability to reproduce or sustain life. The two are also held to unrealistic expectations and standards while their worth is contingent upon the ways they satisfy our specific needs at any given time.
WILD by Helle and Uri Lovevild Golman
On their 25th and last expedition to Gabon, Uri was stabbed by a supposed poacher from Boko Haram on a local market. The next day he died for 2 minutes during heart surgery but luckily Uri survived as his will to live was obviously stronger than death and today he is still grateful for life even sitting in a wheelchair learning how to walk again. Helle is just as much of a fighter, standing by his side for the whole time, dedicating every minute of her life to Uri.
Conversations with Myself by Jo Ann Chaus
After seven years of documenting and exploring my relationships with and within my family of origin, in 2016 I self-published the work Sweetie & Hansom, and began the current series of self-portraits, Conversations with Myself, in which I dress and perform as a mid century woman, appropriating the garb and demeanor of my mother's generation.<
