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.

Date: Friday, November 30, 7pm

Location: Wild Project Theater, 195 East 3rd Street  New York, NY 10009

Cost: $5 suggested donation

Workshop participants are taught advanced image-making practices using accessible photographic devices (such as cell phones or point-and-shoot cameras) or donated professional equipment. Established artists, including filmmakers, fine-art photographers and writers, visit the workshops, present their work and participate in collaborative discourse.

In addition to the work of the individual visual artists participants, collaborative exercises with the NYU Veteran Creative Writing program and Warrior Writers will take place. Participants from the visual and literary programs will partner on several “Call & Response” projects whereby photographs serve as writing prompts. In return, the resulting poetry and narrative prose pieces act as photographic prompts—thus closing the collaborative loop. The results, visually stunning and emotionally evocative works of art, will be presented in the form of a printed catalogue, online catalogue, as well as several public performances.

The workshop participants will engage with the NYC public through a final exhibition of their visual artworks, performance of their “Call & Response” collaborations and through various discursive public forums.

Seeing Here Now workshop participant, Trent Love, discusses the veteran photography workshops on Special People Special Issues (SPSI).
