Gallery Talk with Photographer Troi Anderson

January 18, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - January 18, 2020 @ 3:00 pm

Join us on Saturday, January 18 at 2:00PM for a gallery presentation by photographer Troi Anderson. The artist will speak to his work currently on view in The Stories They Tell: A Hundred Years of Photography.

“In my work I am not just interested in Vodou or in the religions. I see the ritual act as a means by which suffering and difficulty can be translated. The ceremony is a kind of theater. The participant is an actor. And the life and history of each person comes through in these generational rites. They provide an external form to the inner expression of the life that is lived. It is this enduring strength that I seek through my work as a kind of knowledge as to how we survive in a world that is transient.”

His work has been featured on CNN, GeoFrance, TIME Lightbox, The Oregonian, Black and White and the photo collective, Verve.
