As we head back inside after a summer exploring outdoors and the world around us, The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachusetts showcases eleven photographers’ presenting solo exhibitions under the overarching idea of “Home”. Home Views opens on Tuesday October 26th contrasting eleven different visions of the emotional and physical spaces we inhabit.

During the course of the exhibition, we will hear from these eleven artists with a series of panels and artist talks, telling their stories and showcasing the works from each of their series featured here.

Joy BushPlaces I Never Lived

The series Places I Never Lived is an exploration of the way that people put their mark on the world. While photographing the facade of each house in a sleuth-like fashion, I fantasize about who lives there and what life is like on the inside. It is not spying or voyeurism. It is about imaging my life in a different place.

Anton Gautama – Selections from Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home is a one-year journey into the evolution of the Chinese-Indonesian culture. It is the story of a harmonious marriage of two beautiful cultures, three centuries in-the-making. It was not a journey without obstacles, but it certainly was one with countless rewards.

Judi IranyiMantel

For some time, I have been interested in mantels and fireplaces and the symbolisms they represent. In all my travels, I have photographed fireplaces and mantels throughout the world. Some cultures believe them to be a shrine, idols or images of deities were placed on the mantle, a fire was lit, prayers were offered and, in some cultures, offerings were made by burning possessions or trinkets of a departed person.

Charles MintzLustron Stories

Lustron Stories video explores the course of the Great American Dream since that unique time immediately after the Second World War. At the same time, it looks at the history of prefab and manufactured housing that began with the Bauhaus ideal of using industrial methods and materials to produce affordable housing.

Colleen MullinsThe Bone of Her Nose

The Bone of Her Nose documents a phenomenon, I call, the grayification of San Francisco. The genesis of this work was my volunteer work pruning trees with the Friends of the Urban Forest, starting in 2015. This work brought me to neighborhoods throughout the city, and everywhere I went, massive renovation was happening, or already had happened. The end result was always the same: gray exteriors, punctuated with sans-serif fonts for house numbers, a brightly colored door, and horizontally-slatted redwood garage doors or glass variants.

Roberta NeidighProperty Line

Where two plots of suburban land meet, a visual dialogue begins. This point of contact, on the property line, reveals communication between neighbors through landscape as an extension of the self. There is no margin here. Are we connected or divided by the place our land touches the land of another? How is this line drawn? In this body of work, I explore the way we protect our boundaries by creating a buffer in a place that has none, and how we cling more strongly to our own identity as our space near its edge.

Jane SzaboSomewhere Else

The series Somewhere Else maps an emotional route of exploration and escape. When I am here, I want to be there. Yet once I get there, I am left to wonder if this place answers or fulfills my quest. Somewhere Else features simply made homes covered in a wide array of maps, photographed in natural settings and within architectural interiors. The maps that cover these homes do not reflect the location of the image, but rather lead back to places I explored as a child or long to escape to in the future.

Brandy TriguerosThere’s No Other Like Your Mother

Through memory, metaphor, and imagined destinies, “There’s No Other Like Your Mother” seeks to explore the complexities and constructs of female identity and the maternal subject as I reconceive my fertile state of being. The sudden death of my mother prompted the (re)birth of my artistic self at the age of 29 and the emergence of this series which contemplates my own shifting identity, once firmly rooted in the domestic tradition but now seemingly unmoored.

Kathleen Tunnell HandelWhere the Heart Is: Portraits from Vernacular American Trailer and Mobile Home Parks

As the availability of affordable housing continues to erode, and housing and financial instability reach crisis proportions, Where the Heart Is: Portraits from Vernacular American Trailer and Mobile Home Parks investigates this deeply affected, primarily American housing form. This ongoing photographic study challenges the ingrained stereotyping of both the estimated 20 million Americans who live in manufactured housing (as stigmatized trailer and mobile homes are being rebranded) as well as of the rapidly vanishing mobile home parks themselves within which this project is focused.

Ira WagnerTwinhouses of the Great Northeast

The Twinhouses of The Great Northeast neighborhood of Philadelphia reflect how people share a common border. Some families choose to mark their space with a fence or shrubbery. Others differentiate themselves with varying architectural elements and subtle changes to trim, windows and paint colors. One family chooses to hide completely behind a tall hedge; another lives in front of the house with common backyard elements – chairs, grills, patio tables, open for all to see. Common upkeep, such as mowing the lawn, ends at a rough approximation of the property line rather than being shared. One side of a structure shows pride of ownership, the other is missing a shutter on a window. When borders are such an important issue in the world, these images reflect a human inclination to mark and delineate one’s space rather than share it.

Melanie WalkerWanderlust

Connected by metaphor, place and association, disparate images are woven together as are life experiences in dreams. Wanderings through memory, body, mind and world are synchronized into a rhythm of thought, like a chord…walking and falling…

The word wanderlust designates a strong desire for and an impulse to wander. This body of work is the result of allowing myself to wander through influences, impulses and all of those ideas that I left behind on the cutting room floor, so to speak.

The works are drawn from images that I have taken over the years during my wanderings. This work combines landscape images and glimpses of daily routine in ways that address the layered and fragile nature of time, sense of place and memory. Home is a memory…

Shannon Taggart: Séance: Photographs by Shannon Taggart

August 31 - December 17

For the past twenty years American artist Shannon Taggart (born 1975) has documented Spiritualist practices and communities in the United States, England, and Europe. The resulting body of work, Séance, examines the relationship of Spiritualism to human celebrity, its connections to art, science, and technology, and its intrinsic bond with the medium of photography. This exhibition presents forty-seven haunting images from the series, revealing the emotional, psychological, and physical dimensions of Spiritualism in the 21st century.

Shannon Taggart is an artist and author based in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. Her photographs have been exhibited and featured internationally, including within the publications TIME, New York Times Magazine, Discover, and Newsweek. Her work has been recognized by Nikon, Magnum Photos and the Inge Morath Foundation, American Photography and the Alexia Foundation for World Peace. Taggart’s monograph, SÉANCE (Fulgur Press, 2019) was listed as one of TIME magazine’s ‘Best Photobooks of 2019.’

This exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Pensacola Museum of Art.

Focus: Power, Agency, and Objectivity in Early Photography

August 26 - December 23

British photographer Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–1879) once asked: “what is focus, and who has the right to say what focus is the legitimate focus?” Cameron’s question lies at the heart of this exhibition, which traces the early history of photography while probing how myths surrounding the perceived objectivity of this new medium conceal the power dynamics inherent in who photographs, what is photographed, and how photographs are viewed and understood.

A woman who came to photography in her late 40s, Cameron was disparaged by male art critics for the soft focus of her images, an intentional artistic choice often dismissed as a sign of technical ineptitude. This critique speaks to a fundamental tension that dominated discourses on photography in the 1800s: was it primarily a scientific tool best used for precise documentation, or a form of artistic expression on par with well-established genres such as painting? In other words, are photographs, by their very nature, truthful? Or can they manipulate and distort reality?

After an introductory section on early photographic technologies, this exhibition explores these questions through three themes: portraiture, European photographs of faraway lands recently—or soon to be—colonized, and images of the American West. In each case, the photographs on view push us to consider the visible and invisible systems of power that led to their creation, and how photographers’ decisions support or subvert dominant historical narratives.

Elaine Duigenan: Bloßfeldts Lehrling

November 14, 2021 - January 30, 2022

Elaine Duigenan, British photographic artist, recreates Karl Blossfeldt’s iconic photographs of plants in twine. This series was premiered by Klompching Gallery [New York] at AIPAD [Association of International Photography Art Dealers] and has continuously attracted attention. It received gold at the Prix de la Photographie (Paris) and an international photography award at the Pingyao International Festival of Photography, in China. The images depict handmade objects made from cable ties*. They attempt to recreate plant structures seen in iconic photographs by German artist Karl Blossfeldt (1920s). Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) was a German art professor and wanted to encourage his students to pay conscious attention. He built a camera that could magnify up to 30 times and took hundreds of photographs of plant forms. He wanted to demonstrate that the best design was already given in nature. The artist engaged with his images and thus, became a student of today – twisting, tying and bending the material to her will. She says: “My imperfect specimens taunted me with their limitations. But embracing the flaws became the meaning of the work, and showing the connections and loose threads reveals the tension between perfection and imperfection.”
*A cable tie is a metal wire covered with a thin plastic strip used to close the openings of bags, such as garbage or bread bags.
The artist has exhibited internationally and her work is in collections such as the V&A and the Museum of Fine Art in Houston. Her work is represented by Klompching Gallery in New York. In late 2009, one of her paintings was flown to the International Space Station on the shuttle Atlantis. Elaine helped bring the practice of digital scanning (scanography) to the forefront in the 1990s, and her work is exemplified in the V&A’s History of Photographic Processes. It is a truly unique method of capturing such detail and depth. The objects Elaine works with are found or made; things are never quite what they seem, and her work is reduced to a search for unique beauty. Pale specimens glow in deep black spaces and seem to hang by a thread. There is strength and fragility, perfection and imperfection. Her works excite the viewer as the images hover somewhere between whimsicality and elegance.

André Kertész: Postcards from Paris

Oct 2, 2021–Jan 17, 2022

Photographer André Kertész (American, born Hungary, 1894–1985) arrived in Paris in the fall of 1925 with little more than a camera and some savings.

By the end of 1928, he was contributing regularly to magazines and exhibiting his work internationally alongside well-known artists like Man Ray and Berenice Abbott. The three years between his arrival in Paris and his emergence as a major figure in modern art photography marked a period of dedicated experimentation and exploration for Kertész. During this time he carved out a photographic practice that allowed him to move between the realms of amateur and professional, photojournalist and avant-garde artist, diarist and documentarian.

For those three years only, Kertész produced most of his prints on carte postale, or postcard, paper. Although his choice may have initially been born of economy and convenience, he turned this popular format toward artistic ends, rigorously composing new images in the darkroom and making a new kind of photographic object. The small scale of the cards also allowed them to circulate in a way befitting an immigrant artist—shared with a widening circle of international friends at the café table or sent in an envelope to faraway family.

Kerrick James: Arizona Odyssey — Forty Years of Roaming for Beauty

December 4, 2021 - March 5, 2022

Reception: Sat December 4, 4-8pm

Kerrick James began photographing Arizona in 1977, at first only the wild places of exotic beauty, then over time the people and cultures of our Southwestern nirvana. These 67 images are drawn from a thousand explorations across the expanse of Arizona. Some are of places now lost to flood or time. They depict iconic landscapes, ephemeral weather and celestial phenomena, billion-year-old rocks and medusa-like saguaros, cowboys and horses, Hopi and Navajo dancers, adventurers and musicians alike. And of course, Route 66, our distinctive slice of the highway of American myth, and promised freedom.

Photographs are intrinsically documents, but they should also reveal more than mere place, or be a singular time stamp. They can show us ourselves, through the prism of tones and colors, shapes and lines, loss and discovery. I invite you to share in these moments of beauty and life lived well by those I’ve met along the road, and by one sublimely lucky photographer…
