What does it mean to change the visual narrative of a country? This question has been the central focus of Digital Diaspora Family Reunion (DDFR) founded by filmmaker, Thomas Allen Harris. DDFR was designed to encourage people to engage with their own family photographic archives.
This will be the FIRST DDFR photographic exhibition entitled, “Turning Strangers into Family.“ The show will feature large printed images with the stories of the subjects who shared their stories and family albums across the U.S. and the world! We are very proud to be featured at the Whitney Humanities Center at Yale University! The exhibition also coincides with an interdisciplinary course,“Strategies of Visual Memoir in Art Practice,” that Thomas Allen Harris will be teaching this fall at the Yale School of Art. This class will explore the use of archives in constructing real and fictitious narratives.
Visitors will be able to submit their own photographs via email: email@example.com.
