Seeing Here Now’s Photography Exhibition // Warrior Writers NYC Performances // Call & Response Collaborations
In a powerful public performance, Warrior Writers NYC will showcase several veteran artists performing works developed in the past several months. The presented work will have writing as its foundation, but bring music, movement and visual imagery into layered narratives that bring veterans’ stories and poems to life.
Participants from Warrior Writers NYC and Seeing Here Now recently partnered on a Call & Response project whereby photographs served as writing prompts. The resulting poetry and narrative prose pieces then acted as photographic prompts - thus closing the collaborative loop. The resulting collaborations, which will also be performed, are visually stunning and emotionally evocative works of art.
Lastly, the photography exhibition showcases the individual work of ten Seeing Here Now veteran workshop participants. The photographic styles and subjects reflect the unique vision of these military personnel as they consider the home front after returning from war. The works vary broadly — from classic landscapes to staged personal narratives; from night photography to abstraction.
