"Angie Buckley: the In-between Series"
2003-06-01 until 2003-07-01
en foco at the Seventh and Second Photo Gallery
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Angie Buckley explores the different views of her family’s history, through photography, to explain contradictions and duplications of their experiences. Using a Pinhole camera helps reveal the distortion of their memories as Buckley pieces them together in search of her identity.

She states, “each individual’s identity is primarily developed in childhood association with family. Habits, stories and traditions are passed from one generation to the next. As an example, while looking at a photograph of my grandmother taken in the 1920’s my father’s sister will tell the related story as she knows it. The version my father tells about the same images is slightly different, therefore I conclude the precise truth and details are missing. On the other hand, on my mother’s side the memorabilia are few as well as the stories. Overall, exploring one’s heritage is a rich journey, particularly in a time when social equality and recognition are prominent political topics. In a nation established on immigration many of us are products of cross-pollination and are caught among several cultures.”

Buckley has received a BFA in Photography from Ohio University, Athens, OH in 1996, and in 2001 an MFA in Photography from Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ. Her exhibitions include Southern Light Gallery, TX; A-4, Massachusetts College of Arts, MA; Northlight Gallery, Arizona State University, Harry Wood Gallery and Arizona History Museum, AZ; Art Institute of Colorado, CO; Sol Koffler Gallery & Rhode Island School of Art & Design, RI; and many others. Her awards include, a Fellowship, American Photography Institute, 2001, NY; AIGA Prisma Award for Photography Portfolio and College of Fine Arts Enrichment Grant, 2001, AZ; Albert K. Murray Fine Arts Educational Fund, OH, 1998 - 2000; Raymond C. Cook Scholarship, Ohio University, OH 1996.
