Photography Comes First and Language Follows

Photography Comes First and Language Follows, Watkins College of Art

Photography Comes First and Language Follows is an exhibition of eight women photographers from middle Tennessee. The works represents a group of photographers who have sustained a yearlong dialogue about photography, and this brings together their work for the first time.

The title of the show, from an essay by the Japanese photographer Shomei Tomatsu, captures a shared emphasis on the primacy of practice and the dialogue that has ensued. This show is as much about a conversation as it is about continuities in these artists’ work. Participants include: Rachel Boillot, Beth Gorham (whose work is pictured above), Stacy Kranitz, Vesna Pavlovic, Kristine Potter, Tamara Reynolds, Christine Rogers, Julia Steele. Robin Paris, faculty member at Watkins in photography and a member of the group, curated the show.

A closing reception will occur on September 27th from 6-8 p.m.
