The Power of Photography

“Welcome to the exhibition Grand Illusions: Staged Photography from the Met Collection, where you’ll find your eyes wandering and your imagination running loose. At the exhibition’s entrance, you’ll see a lady in white, the Countess of Castiglione, in Pierre-Louis Pierson’s La Frayeur. After losing myself in the Museum for three hours on an ordinary Tuesday, I found myself entranced by this lady in white. Clearly, she is a woman of finer taste: her dress is posh and hair exquisite. But, it was her pose that drew me in. I wondered, “What’s wrong? Why is she running away?” And, as an afterthought, ‘Was it her fault?'”

PHOTOGRAPHER GILLIAN LAUB ON SEGREGATED PROMS AND A FIGHT FOR CIVIL RIGHTS

“On June 26th, Feature Shoot hosted the second edition of The BlowUp, a new quarterly event in which we ask a selected group of NYC photographers to each tell the stories behind one of their favorite images. This time, the theme was Subcultures, and Gillian Laub chose this shot, titled Prom Prince and Princess Dancing, from her work in Montgomery County, Georgia, which she has since published in the book and documentary film Southern Rites. Her journey began in 2002, when she first learned about the community’s segregated proms, in which teenagers were divided into a “white folks prom” and a “black folks prom,” and extended into 2011, when she was finally allowed—after being run out of town several times—to document the now-integrated prom in Lyons, GA, a hard-won victory fought for by generations of youngsters who dared to challenge the status quo.

The BlowUp is sponsored by Agency Access.”
