continuing Freighting Ideas: How Did I Get Here? Exhibitions|Displays

How Did I Get Here? asks what exactly brought us to this exact place in life? What went wrong, what went right, what random acts of fate, have set us down, just so, in this place at this time? The exhibition invites audiences to ask these questions about each work and its subjects. What forces have landed them in this moment, captured as themselves and as actors in a photographer’s drama? How did the work come to be?
