“this photographic series revisits historical ethnographic studio portraiture using mass-manufactured goods purchased from american shopping malls and restyled to highlight popular fantasies associated with ‘ethnic’ patterning and costume.” —stephanie syjuco (@ssyjuco )
how do you use photography to investigate the self? we asked photographers now on view in “being: #newphotography2018" to share the ideas and techniques that influence the exploration of personhood in their work. see their responses at mo.ma/newphoto2018

“i think of all the works that i make as having the potential emotional resonance that they could remind you of something in your own life. or, if they don’t remind you of something that’s already happened, in a way, they could remind you of something in the future. it’s like a souvenir. later, you would have a particular experience and you would have a feeling in that experience and think, “oh my god, i had that feeling before. when did i have that feeling before? oh, i was looking at this artwork.” that’s what i’m going for.”

“one day i had a dream. i remember well that on waking up i went to my easel to paint my dream. there were three black boots in the middle of the road with very high houses. this canvas was acquired by a friend, almost against my will because i wanted to keep it, as it was the only one that artistically translates into art images of a dream i had had.”—tarsila do amaral on her humorous, surreal painting, “city (the street)” (1929), now on view in #tarsilamoma
