Sisters by T. Greenwood

 

Vanished

Nov. 19- Jan. 8

Through photographing her daughters over a period of five years, T. Greenwood has documented the transformations and changes her girls have undergone on their journeys from early childhood to pre-adolescence. Influenced by the work of Sally Mann, Greenwood uses black and white photography to capture the essence of innocence and defy the transience of childhood.

Although these photos aren’t staged there is an uncanny similarity between captured moments several years apart. The discovery of these similarities by Greenwood prompted the presentation of these photographs.

“This collection of photographs might be considered evidence of the inevitability of change, of loss. But it might also be considered a study in permanence,” writes T. Greenwood of this exhibit.
