Come explore There May Be More Beautiful Times, a new body of work by Anna Reich. This project is a collection of photographs produced over a decade that both parallels and challenges expectations of life and expectations of photography. Using traditional genres and vernacular images (representing what is known, familiar, comfortable and understood) in contrast with experimental image-making processes (representing the abstracted, unfamiliar and at times undesirable) this work perpetuates photography’s analogic, and at times fantastical, relationship with reality while also including reminders of the medium’s formal limitations. Being both celebratory and critical of photography itself, this project – and its title – grew from an interest in the inherent nostalgia that is bound to many traditional forms and uses of the photographic image. Inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre’s quote, “There may be more beautiful times, but this one is ours,” encapsulated the thematic goals of this collection.
