In RE:FOCUS, four emerging Black women photographers present new perspectives on Black art, life, and culture. Swan Coach House Gallery is pleased to present RE:FOCUS, a photography exhibition curated by Dr. Fahamu Pecou featuring works by Melissa Alexander, Stephanie Brown, Terra Coles, Natrice Miller.

Acclaimed photographer Dawoud Bey is adamant about not using terms like “shoot”, “capture”, “take” etc when creating his images. Instead he prefers to think of his practice as making photos or images, insisting that the conventional language of photography connotes violence and harm.

As more artists of color begin to take agency over the ways they are imaged, new ways of seeing and being are emerging. Each of the artists in this exhibit, enter the discipline of photography from different vantage points and give us glimpses into intimate spaces. Spaces we can only gain access to when the photographer and subject create together. They don’t “take photos”, they make moments. And in refocusing their approach, make visible worlds we never knew existed.
