My White Friends
extends Myra Greene’s 10-year exploration into photography’s description of race. Images initially read as benign portraits of a cross section of white American life, yet the impetus for their creation lies in an undercurrent of racial description. By photographing friends, peers, and mentors, Greene visually ponders if photography can capture and describe the nuances of whiteness. Do gesture and environment allude to a lived truth, a performance by the sitter, or stereotype implored by the photographer herself? These photographs offer descriptions instead of resolutions. Readers charged with dissecting coded information, are confronted with their own notions of race.
