For the Record: Political / Personal / Historical

September 3–October 11, 2019

An inquisitive little girl reads a picture book on a table in front of her. Her white ruffled dress is magnificent and seems like it does not belong in this time period. Her hair is in thick black coils as she reads. Despite the ancient nature of her attire, the image appears to be three-dimensional, with red and bright blue hues splitting the page.
