Since the advent of the Kodak camera in 1888, we’ve been crafting our appearance – in portraits and selfies – for a public audience.
“Fashioning Self: The Photography of Everyday Expression” examines the role of photography in shaping, sharing and shifting identity. The exhibit, now on display at the Phoenix Art Museum, features 54 works of street, documentary and self-portrait photography spanning 1912 to 2015 that explore the complex relationship between fashion as a tool for self-expression and photography’s role in capturing it.
The exhibit, born of a world where cameras are commonplace and (nearly) everyone curates a feed, invites audience participation.
