Vanessa Woods Artist Talk Recording
Recording of my virtual artist talk at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, February 2, 2022. In this talk I discuss the genesis of my current body of work, Vestiges (2017-present), which consists of photographs and collages exploring the human body through the maternal lens. I share the range of experimental techniques used to define and erase physical boundaries, speaking to the blurred margins between my children’s bodies and my own. Additionally, I provide an overview of earlier projects that have informed the work I am now creating, collages that incorporate my own photographs as source material.
