The Story in the Sequence with Laurent B. Chevalier (Webinar)
- February 19, 2022
10:00 am - 11:30 am
This webinar will explore photography’s particular ability to construct narrative through the arrangement and sequencing of photos in proximity to each other. We will discuss various methods useful in determining and shaping a photo sequence, for various artistic purposes.
Living and working in New York City, Laurent Chevalier (http://www.laurentchevalier.com/) utilizes photography to shift the frameworks of representative imagery. Using processes and media from the past, Laurent archives for the future while simultaneously engaging contemporary social issues and promoting social justice. Not solely a documentary nor conceptual photographer, Laurent rather navigates the space that borders these genres. His practice is a synthesis of the known and unknown, considering the tension around the meaning of photographic expression. His images seek to dialogue through past, present and future, while continuously contributing new perspectives of Black America and the African Diaspora into the canon.
Laurent’s work has been collected by the Schomburg Library, Metropolitan Museum Of Art’s Watson Library, Museum Of Modern Art Library, Guggenheim Library, Texas State University Library, and the Green Library at Stanford University. He is an inaugural member of the Black Photographer collective See In Black, and the author of Enough, his artist monograph published through Kris Graves Projects. He has exhibited across the country, and his work has appeared with Vogue, Fast Company, and Huffington Post, among others.
