New Photography is the annual fall showcase of significant recent work in contemporary photography. This year’s exhibition includes work by three artists—from the United States, Canada, and South Africa, respectively—working in a variety of techniques and across a range of themes. Tanyth Berkeley’s (American, b. 1969) compelling portraits of a variety of people, from transgender women to street performers to close friends, celebrate unique beauty. Scott McFarland (Canadian, b. 1975) uses digital technology to seamlessly stitch together negatives made over a period of weeks and months to create exquisitely detailed large-scale works that subtly record the passage of time. Berni Searle (South African, b. 1964) probes the processes of recollection and forgetting with the beautifully realized series of photographs About to Forget, based on the memory of her own fractured family.

Organized by Eva Respini, Assistant Curator, Department of Photography.
