📅 June 4 – June 26, 2022
In selecting this group of photographers, our ideas about what caregiving means expanded with each new image we reviewed. Javier Álvarez provides us with intimate portraits of Latino food deliverers; Cinthya Santos Briones helps up-end the meaning of caregiving with her unexpected images of indigenous performers who provide care and healing within their communities, using ancient cultural traditions. In the stunning portraits by Accra Shepp, Angelo Merendino, and Raymond Holman, Jr., we see the strength, dignity, and pride of a diverse group of nurses whose work is long and hard and largely unsung. Anna and Jordan Rathkopf record hundreds of volunteers who stepped up without hesitation during the pandemic, and who found support amongst the growing movement of mutual aid societies. Liz Sanders, Cheney Orr, and Yael Ben-Zion provide us with intimate images of family caregiving—replete with poignancy, joy, and tragedy. Together this group of images is about collective care, devotion, empathy, and compassion.care:work - Photoville Festival
