Assistant Professor of Art Robert Knight published “Family of Man,” a review of a recent photography exhibition, in the current issue of Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism.
In his essay, Knight discussed Taryn Simon’s “A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters I-XVIII,” which was on display during the summer at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. According to Knight, “Simon’s project consists of 18 ‘chapters’ (nine of which were on display at MoMA), each focusing on a group of people or animals that are usually connected genetically.”
According to its website, Afterimage “has been an important voice in the photography, film, video and visual book community” for more than 30 years. It is published bimonthly by the Visual Studies Workshop, a non-profit media arts center in Rochester, N.Y.
