Musée Limited Editions: Karine Laval

Karine Laval: I was already fascinated with photography as a child. My grandparents lived near Paris that had the first Museum of Photography. It had this huge collection of old cameras. The first pictures I took with a camera were pictures of surveillance. I was snooping on my grandparents' neighbors from the roof of their building.

Remembering a Spotlight Artist: Sarah Charlesworth

At the end of the novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, a young boy imagines his father at the moment he jumped off the Twin Towers on 9/11. He envisions his father suspended in air mid-fall, floating eternally in the ether. This is the concept behind the late Sarah Charlesworth’s hauntingly beautiful images in her collection Stills.

On The Run: Interview with Dawoud Bey

Dawoud: My work is not intended to demystify the myths surrounding the Underground Railroad since they are not documentary photographs, but the project is meant to provoke the imagination around that history. It aims to give it a resonant visualization and make that history come alive in the photographic object. The work is intended to place the viewer in a liminal space in between the past and present, and between fact and fiction.

Thinking Aloud: Interview with Mary Reid and Patrick Kelly

Mary Reid Kelley: We've been together since 2002, but we didn't start working together until 2008. We've been collaborating together for ten years, so it's been a slow roll towards this full collaboration together. When we started making films together it was just under my name, but gradually Pat's involvement became much more significant and we started crediting him over the years.

Home Page: Interview with Molly Soda

Molly Soda: I’ve always been drawn to private spaces and the bedroom as a backdrop. The bedroom is where we connect with each other virtually and I love being able to get a glimpse of that when I’m online. The desktop in some ways is like the second bedroom for me, housing all of my clutter and intimate thoughts.
