Storied Lives: 

Select Works by David Graham & Terri Warpinski

Storied Lives features portraits by David Graham from Land of the Free and selections from Death|s|trip by Terri Warpinski.

Land of the Free is photographer David Graham’s tribute to the American people in all their idiosyncratic splendor. A tireless traveler and a natural-born visual storyteller, Graham has photographed ordinary folks in their homes, at work, and at play across the nation to assemble a composite picture of America. Graham’s colorful portraits showcase the personalities who give America its character.

Death[s]trip is a story of human mortality written on the landscape. In looking at present day Berlin through the filter of history, these works combine contemporary photographs and text with archival elements to reveal some of the consequences of enforced political borders. From 1961-1989, 140 individuals died in failed attempts to flee over the Berlin Wall from Soviet occupied East Germany to freedom in West Berlin. Focusing on these victims, Death|s|trip probes the contingent properties of meaning, memory, and reflection in relation to both the landscape and the photographic image.

Saturdays Are For Road Trips: Photographs by Frank Juárez and Pat Ryan

Saturdays became an excuse to get in the car to embark on random road trips throughout Wisconsin and neighboring states to explore, connect, and decompress from life’s stressors centered around COVID. This photographic exhibition is a testament to their friendship, love for photography, and traveling. It highlights two distinct perspectives of turning the mundane to a thing of beauty and capturing life as it happens through the eye of the lens.

Ger Xiong: 
The Stories We Carry

“As stateless people, the erasure of Hmong history has long been a part of our history. The work presented is a collection of stories and narratives created by using materials, patterns, symbols, colors, of my Hmong American identity. Through my Hmong American experience, I am interested in the navigation and negotiation of cultural identity within dominant spaces from histories of colonization, displacement, and assimilation and how I can reclaim my Hmong identity.” – Ger Xiong
