In the practice of photography, the lines between documentary and tableaux, the candid and the staged, have always been a bit blurry. A sense of truth pervades photographic images, part of the persistent idea that what is depicted is "real" despite the ubiquitousness of the contrary. A certain kind of photographer is inspired by the nuances of the reality-fiction limbo, and that potential for self-expression inside that liminal place in which everything is both found and made, existing and imagined, ambivalent yet chosen. Contemporary artist Genevieve Gaignard puts this into play through her persona-based self-portraiture. This afternoon she activates the current exhibition "Real Worlds: Brassaï, Arbus, Goldin" with a conversation on how these topics played out in those iconic artists' work.
