For photographer Elle Pérez, whose work is featured in the exhibition Orlando at Art on Hulfish, the camera is an instrument of recognition, creating intimate documents of community relationships. Pérez’s multifaceted practice of portrait, landscape, and observational photography centers on the complexity of personal identity. The artist will discuss images, identity, and storytelling across their work, and will be introduced by Chief Curator Juliana Ochs Dweck. The exhibition Orlando is organized by Aperture, New York. Guest Curated by Tilda Swinton.
