Artists's Talk: John Edmonds
John Edmonds is an American artist and photographer who
first came to public recognition with his intimate portraits of
lovers, close friends, and strangers. His work explores themes of
identity, community, and desire. Noted for his highly formalist
photographs in which he focuses on the performative gestures
and self-fashioning of young black men on the streets of America,
he is a participant in the 2019 Whitney Biennial. In 2018, Time
Magazine listed his debut monograph, Higher, as one of the top 25
Photobooks of the year. Represented by Company Gallery, he lives
and works in Brooklyn, New York and is on faculty at Yale University
and the School of Visual Arts, NY. Edmonds will discuss his work in
the Be Strong and Do Not Betray Your Soul exhibition.
