ID photo of a woman with golden foil

Carolle Benitah artwork is included in the collective exhibition from the McEvoy Family Collection’s extensive holdings of portraiture, Image Gardeners, from  Jan 14 - April 2022. This show assembles eight decades of portrait photography by women and non-binary makers who reflect, reframe, and resist dominant conventions of representation. In opposition to Susan Sontag’s theory that photography is a “voracious way of seeing,” an image gardener employs photographic seeing as a means of cultivation, preservation, and collaboration. Together, the portrait photographs on view nurture new visions of the self and challenge our collective understanding of how identity is constructed, communicated, and perceived. Among others, this show includes self-portraits by Diane Arbus, Vivian Maier, and others,  or Lorna Simpson.
