Statement from Carolyn Drake on the back of print “Internat Children’s Home. Ternopil, Ukraine. 2016.”
“The theater was off-limits to the Internat residents and myself most of the time, but every once in a while we were given access for brief photo sessions. In those moments, we scrambled to juxtapose the women’s playful poses with the fairy tale-like props found around the room. For me, it was about engaging with this family of women who were living in an institutional setting, and working with them to imagine scenarios beyond what was real.”
Carolyn Drake works on long term photo-based projects seeking to interrogate dominant historical narratives and create alternative and imaginative interpretations of reality. Her work explores community and the interactions within it, as well as the barriers and connections “between people, between places and between ways of perceiving”.
