Of Objects and Shadows/De Objetos y Sombras Group Exhibition at CPW Kingston




Late Summer of 2022 I was granted the opportunity to curate a group exhibition for CPW.

The exhibition title came to me naturally and was informed by my desire to not rely on ethinicity as the common denominator amongst the artists shown. Instead, I wanted to highlight their use of formal photographic concepts of light and shadow, emphasizing their identities as photographers first. 

Nevertheless, after years of working on the Dodge & Burn blog with the goal of spotlighting the work of photographers of color, I am delighted to have been able to put together this show with exclusively Latinx artists working in photography.

Of Objects and Shadows/De Objetos y Sombras features new and recent work by Nydia Blas (Panama/USA) and William Camargo (Mexico/USA), Genesis Baez (Puerto Rico/USA), Steven Molina Contreras (El Salvador), Zoraida Lopez-Diago (Panama/USA) and myself.
