Photo of a Photo

Geared with her use of cyanotype prints and embroidery, Isha Naguiat’s artworks progress from the idea of memories as idealized landscapes of the past—a growing disquisition of why these visual documentations are always more than what they initially seem.

The exhibition “Photo of a Photo” utilizes the concept of family photos as portrayals of a much bigger story. Isha invites us on a pursuit of the intertextuality of histories that once shaped lives—retold, rewritten and reconsidered—to draw out the truths we choose to continue to live with.
