In the Forest: Aliene de Souza Howell

As Howell writes, “[her] work examines our interactions with each other, the objects we use, and the natural world.

African Photography: For Whose Eyes?

The premise of this exhibition is that photography is a particularly potent tool in objectifying what is in its lens, and that over time, from the colonial period to the contemporary period, the photograph in Africa has changed from initially being an instrument of the European colonist — to the later studio “dream factories” in the cities — to the rich and complex work African photographers today.
