Tracking Down Intimacy

Feb 17 - Apr 25, 2021

Fotografiska New York and the Black Artist Fund (BAF) have partnered to showcase the talent of emerging Black artists and to support BAF’s efforts broadening opportunities for Black creators.

To kick off the partnership, Fotografiska New York and BAF present Tracking Down Intimacy, an installation featuring select images from three 2020 BAF grantees, photographers Chanell Stone, Edward Cushenberry, and Kendall Bessent. The photographers were selected by Fotografiska New York and BAF Founder Claudia Eng to participate in the installation based on the quality and impact of the work. Through the lenses of Stone, Cushenberry, and Bessent, the installation explores loss, closeness, tenderness, and power during a time when intimacy is on hold for many.
