New Work: Photographs and Sound Installation by Jennifer Karady
Sept 18 - Nov 12, 2014
Jennifer Karady works with American veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to create staged narrative photographs that depict their individual stories and address their difficulties in adjusting to civilian life. This installation debuts new works based on the personal accounts of U-M student veterans. After extensive interviews with the veterans and their families, Karady collaborates with each of her subjects to restage a chosen moment from war within the safe space of his or her everyday environment, often surrounded by family and friends. The soldiers’ stories photographs are accompanied by text audio recordings from the interviews.
