Erica Deeman: Silhouettes

Exhibition Website

Mar 8 2017 - Jun 11 2017

This exhibition presents Erica Deeman’s series Silhouettes, thirty large-scale photographs of women from the African diaspora. The manner in which these images were shot and printed emphasizes the subjects’ stark silhouettes against a white background; however, these are actually color photographs, and prolonged looking reveals nuances of tone that call into question our initial assumptions about the technique and, by extension, the subjects themselves.
