Featured Description (from the owner)
Invoking intimacy is at the heart of Ann Rosen's artistic process. Her book In the Presence of Family, published in 2018, shows the countless ways families are created. The warm bond between the sitters and the photographer leaves a trace in each photograph.
The photographs in Being Seen came out of an art and photography workshop the artist conducted with women who lived in a shelter in Brooklyn. The women collaborated with the artist on these portraits; the photographs reflect the way the participants wanted to be seen. Several women decided to share their life stories with the public through texts and other media, also included in the exhibition. As in each photograph taken by Rosen, these subjects look into the camera and pose, sometimes with humor, and always with pride.
