Exhibition Highlights

About The Exhibition

Sharon Core has worked with the subject of food in various forms for the past fifteen years — investigating its relationship to human behavior as well as its place in art history. Still Lives: Early Works by Sharon Core presents examples from Core’s Eating and The Overtoom Squatters, two series that are among her earliest works. The photographs that make up these series defy straightforward categorization; they are at once documentary photographs, portraits, and still lifes. Core’s exploration of subject matter and studio practice in these early series became the foundation for her later, internationally-acclaimed work in which she continues to push, question, and challenge the boundaries of photography.
