Gary Metz lecture | Vanessa Winship
RISD's Photography department welcomes Gary Metz lecturer Vanessa Winship, a visual poet whose photographs are concerned with the elusive qualities of fragility and transience in history, landscape and individual lives and society. A wanderer by nature, Winship has amassed a body of work that moves between genres—reportage, documentary, portraiture and landscape—as well as diverse geopolitical territories including the Balkans, the countries bordering the Black Sea and America.
Winner of the Prix Henri Cartier Bresson, Godfrey Argent Prize (National Portrait Gallery), Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize, and the Oskar Barnack Award, Winship has exhibited her work in France, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Canada and Spain. Her retrospective exhibitions include And Time Folds, Barbican, London (2018) and Vanessa Winship, Fundación MAPFRE (2014). She has published five monographs of her work, most recently And Time Folds (MACK, 2018), she dances on Jackson (MACK, 2018, 2016) and Vanessa Winship (Fundación MAPFRE, 2016).
