Confession | Courage | Catharsis
On the surface, Karen Divine’s images feel colorful and playful – and in many ways they are. But as I spent more time with them, they began to take on a more somber and darker tone. There are wounds and secrets here.

When I think of my own childhood, my first memory is always of flight. It is twilight and I am flying downhill on my bicycle towards home. I can see the lights coming on in my house and can already imagine myself standing …

Again, again, and again
The work of a novice is typically characterized by its exploratory, frequently random character. Beginning photographers see everything as a potential subject – people, buildings, birds, whatever.

Self (un)Seen
Viewing Anita White’s self-portrait series “Absent”, I am struck by the deep irony and tension between these images and the current ubiquity on social media of what we call the ‘selfie’, which the Oxford English Dictionary dubbed the word of the year in 2013. Selfies and social media …
