Early Works will be an exhibition that examines the naive imagery made by contemporary photographers when they were children. These early images often reveal surprising talent, visual intuition, and honesty. Kept for many decades in shoeboxes and faded albums, the images are often cherished belongings that play a key role in defining the self as artist.
This exhibition will be a close look at photographers’ earliest works, paired with personal narratives about the images and their role in each photographers’ development as an artist.
