In Sight – Photography

May 15 – June 30, 2023

Juried by Shana Lopes, PhD
Assistant Curator of Photography, SFMOMA

Poetry by Suz Lipman


To me, a good photograph is something that is visually arresting, technically strong, and grounded in or motivated by a clear idea.

A powerful photograph makes me think twice; I return to it again and again to think about what the artist is trying to say. Originality and thoughtfulness of approach are especially important to me.

Beneath layers of time

What we know is erased

Winter bares our secrets

Remember the way the lilacs smelled?

Bobbing in the open breeze?

I face the past and the future head-on

All that sun

Lost in solitude, among many

How will they know we were here?

And that day we spontaneously two-stepped

Heels scuffing on the kitchen floor

What is memory without souvenir?

Ink put down on paper

We only briefly pass through

O’Hanlon Center for the Arts thanks Shana for her time and selections
