“The biggest revelation that I will take from the experience of co-curating this exhibition is how the historical photographs from ICP’s collections are brought into the present day. They read in a completely new way in ‘Public, Private, Secret.’ This exhibition is, for me, about learning how to read a photograph again. It’s all about the context and the correspondences that we establish between historical and contemporary photography. There are many layers to the exhibition and I think what people will remember is photography and image-making all working together to create meaning.”
