November 9 Photographer-Filmmaker Laurel Nakadate Speaks

Laurel Nakadate, represents the Yale school of photography: strong portraits, enmeshing the personal and fictional, unsettling the viewer. It is art's response to our modern situation of panopticon voyeurism. Yale school photographers often create cinematic situations and Nakadate circled back on cinema, producing a film Stay The Same Never Change, with similar subject matter. In between photography and cinema, she has also produced videos, essentially performances with herself and sometimes strangers. A bold photographer to watch.
