The Center for Creative Photography - FINDING MEANING: AN OFFERING OF PHOTOGRAPHS FOR AN UNCERTAIN TIME

Oct 31, 2020

Photographs can support the journey through our diverse experiences of processing, loss, and healing; we all react and respond to images differently, based on our own life perspectives. In this exhibition the Center shares a range of photographs to encourage investigation, reflection, and restoration as we explore ideas central to this historical moment.  The exhibition (both online and in the Center’s Main and Heritage galleries) will share images within five conceptual pairs that seem particularly resonant at this time: connection/isolation; wellness/illness; solace/discomfort; presence/absence; and communal/domestic. We will create opportunities to share thoughts and responses to the photographs, building a collective and multivocal conversation about how we are experiencing and coping during this time.

Finding Meaning: An Offering of Photographs for an Uncertain Time will be available for viewing online here and on CCP Interactive, our new mobile app, on October 29.
