Con respecto a fragmentos de lx masculinx | Antonio Pulgarin
Essay by Edwin Ramoran
2020 Workspace Resident Antonio Pulgarin was featured in Spot Magazine.
“In his series Fragments of the Masculine, artist Antonio Pulgarin lays bare the complex relationship to his queer and Colombian / Latinx identities through photographs and collages composed with found objects and family photographs, specifically those of himself, his father, uncle, and stepfather. These new works—as an unrepressed system of representation—mark a specific transition in the artist’s creative explorations as he expands beyond the straight portraiture and documentary photography of earlier series including Los Banilejos, Calle 4 Sur, and Welcome to Wyckoff Gardens.” – Edwin Ramoran
The Moon Belongs to Everyone
Baxter St at CCNY community member Stacy Mehrfar’s new photobook was written about in the British Journal of Photography.
‘Stacy Mehrfar’s new photobook captures the emotional effects of migration and the loss of stability, self, and belonging that can be felt during this transitory experience. Through repetition and the sense of movement, Mehrfar creates a world within her book that mimics the oscillating feelings of this state of limbo. “I want the book to feel like its own universe — once you enter this space, you cannot leave.”’ – Marigold Warner
