Notes From a Detour

Detour \ ˈdē-ˌtu̇r; a deviation from a direct course or the usual procedure, an unanticipated change of route

August 8-13, 2022

The 2022 MFA in Photography graduating class offer their photographs as field notes and subjective observations from the unforeseen diversions of the past two years. Undertaking an MFA has been a conscious step into the unknown. With the medium and tradition of photography as our companion, we gave ourselves space to pay attention, to look closely at the world and our deepest concerns, without knowledge of a final destination. Our photographs, made in diverse locations, in our local communities, and at home, became maps that helped us uncover and navigate our route.

Notes From a Detour will be on display at the Joseloff Gallery at the Hartford Art School from August 8–13, 1–5 p.m. with a reception on Friday August 12 from 7–9 p.m.
