With over 90,000 visitors, Photoville is the largest annual photographic event in New York, NY. Situated in Brooklyn Bridge Park, it's also free and open to the public each year. The exhibitions are held in individual shipping containers, and various artists and organizations hold floor talks, workshops, and discussions.
In one of these containers, I participated in a group show titled Apparatus of Discomfort, which was curated by Jeanine Oleson. Featuring 20 artists, the exhibition incorporated and deconstructed a wide range of contemporary issues and practices.
Apparatus of Discomfort is an exploration of the photographic potential to reimagine relationships between bodies and feeling through abstraction, infrastructure, and identity. The artists in this exhibition form complex and varied approaches as they consider themes in contemporary photographic strategies and tactics.

I also showed my newest video work, pictured here at the back of installation. A 5 minute video, meant to pair with the photographs of Statecraft, played throughout the two weeks, adding a portrait in motion type of experience for the viewer.
It was a pleasure to exhibit in such a beautiful spot under the Brooklyn Bridge and alongside such talented artists and organizations.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
