An exploration of relationships mediated by photography with work by current students in Parsons MFA Photography Program. The artists in this exhibition form complex and varied approaches to ideas of culture, history, experience and perception. How we relate in the world, from familial to material, the work shown pushes on the complicated ideas of connection.

Photography itself is often described as particularly important aspect of identification and memory in the act of relating. Work shown in this exhibition is organized as a collective, nuanced and visual definition of this negotiation in photography today.

ORGANIZATION BIO

The MFA in Photography program at Parsons School of Design functions as a 21st-century studio and think tank. Students are encouraged to develop their individual vision in a collaborative interdisciplinary environment and to explore related technologies, focusing on the relationship between concept and production. A rigorous critique process and regular meetings with faculty, visiting artists and critics help students develop a unique point of view and situate themselves and their work within the larger historical, theoretical, and contemporary visual contexts.
