December 2016/January 2017 -- Photography by Deborah Kai.
“The Power of People” photo exhibit presents highlights from Deborah
Kai’s recent work examining how individuals are activating their power
in their personal lives. The images, depicting small vignettes of life
set against the larger context of the world, encourage us to ask
questions about the story in the photo… and by doing so, explore within
ourselves: How are we exerting our own personal power? How do we wield
our power in our own lives? And ultimately, what kind of world are we
creating with our power?
The exhibit showcases images from two separate projects:
“Going Places” was shot on the
streets of New Orleans in December 2015 and focuses on people who are
using bicycles as their primary mode of transportation. As a
pollution-free, more affordable and portable alternative to
automobiles, bicycles may be the most democratic form of transportation
“Beyond Gender: A Documentary Photo
Essay” debuted here in Lawrence at the Free State Film Festival in June
2016 and was the result of the artist traveling to dozens of states
throughout the Midwest as well as both coasts, following the
presidential campaign trail. These images challenge the viewer to
recognize, and then reconcile, opposing aspects of their own political
identity in the hopes of creating a new dialogue about what we seek as
Americans, and as people.
Deborah Kai is an emerging visual storyteller who believes documentary
and street photography is about finding the hidden messages within the
scenes that unfold in front of her. She believes photography is a
powerful tool that effect change within a single heart, or within an
entire society. All messages have an element of ambiguity in them,
which then lets the viewer join the conversation, bringing their own
interpretation to the subject matter. You can view more of her work at www.deborahkai.com.
All of the pieces in the exhibit are for sale from Ms. Kai.
