Through a series of interviews and extensive research into the conditions of warfare that fighting an insurgency has created, Karady presents dramatic portraits that capture traumatic combat moments.

Personalities: Fantasy and Identity in Photography and New Media

Personalities: Fantasy and Identity in Photography and New Media
01/17/15 – 04/19/15
Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert

Using the diverse aesthetic traditions of portraiture as points of departure, this exhibition explores the representational power of photography from its origins in the nineteenth century to its digital forms in the present. Drawing from the museum?s permanent collection as well as from loans, Personalities emphasizes the unique characteristics of the photographic image to shape both the identity of a photographed sitter and a viewer?s sense of a subject?s persona. This exhibition examines how the careful art of the portrait can dive deep into an individual?s soul, but can also be manipulated to create personalities that exist beyond the realms of the real.
