Images from Flora Imperfecta, an ongoing photography project by UIndy Department of Art & Design Assistant Professor of Photography Sarah Pfohl, are now part of the Midwest Photographers Project at the Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) in Chicago.
The MoCP is the world’s premier college art museum dedicated to photography. Its Midwest Photographers Project is a revolving collection that highlights the work of 60 photographers from across the midwest.
Pfohl’s work explores the relationship between place and living with chronic illness. Flora Imperfecta depicts organic structures in the forest where Pfohl takes her daily, prescribed walks.
Pfohl says: “I’m very grateful to the Museum of Contemporary Photography for inviting me to be part of the Midwest Photographers Project. Participation is an unexpected honor and a career highlight for me. Flora Imperfecta, the ongoing photo project included in the Midwest Photographers Project, is anchored around the intersection between disability and representation. I’m excited to engage UIndy students with research and ideas that informed the project through my upcoming Spring Term course, Photography & Disability Rights.”
