Featuring work from the Advanced Photography students of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
How can photography help us see?
What do we overlook within ourselves as we move through the world?
How can a photograph help us to look further, deeper – within ourselves and around us?
A lens between our eyes and the world around us can open up our eyes to something we may not otherwise see.
In this exhibition featuring work from the Advanced Photography students of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, each artist uses their camera as a tool to illuminate aspects of our lives which are often overlooked. The body becomes landscape, a map of past experiences. The story of creation is reexamined and imagined. We meet people who are quietly engaged in unpacking their white privilege. The visual landscape of the present begins to tell us stories of the past. We see what it feels like to exist in isolation. Fantasy shows us new truths about reality. This exhibit breaks down blinders and asks us to slow down and break up the ever-quickening pace of our lives, to look closer at what all too often is overlooked.
