Eternal Return presents a non-linear family narrative of bereavement, separation and reunification through dreamscapes and mythic archetypes. Composing black and white landscapes, still-lifes, personal family photos in a series of collages on a skylight windowpane to obscure the light of the Sun, the series seeks to question the obfuscating effect of photographs in the cyclical nature of mourning and the passing of memories from generation to generation.
This exhibition presents images from 44 young photographers who graduated in the Spring of 2020, amid the disruptions and closures brought on by the spread of COVID-19. We set out to create a call for entries that could provide an alternative to canceled and disrupted thesis exhibitions to give students an opportunity to present their work to a broader public. The following represents a survey of submitted works, including one image from each newly graduated photographer who submitted to our call.
