Jess T. Dugan’s series Every Breath We Drew explores the power of identity, desire, and connection through portraits of herself and others. Her photographs challenge our perceptions of identity and the attitudes often defined by it. Her series Every Breath We Drew began with the idea of photographing people who demonstrated a common sense of identity she could connect with, whether physically or emotionally. Jess’s photographs have been featured in The New York Times, TheBoston Globe, Fusion Network,Advocate, and Photograph Magazine. Currently on view at AIPAD 2015 are two of Jess T. Dugan’s self-portraits. Make sure to stop by Booth #204!
In most of my images I want you to have to participate, even if it’s just to take stock of what your reaction is to that, but also to be invited into this moment in a positive way. – Jess T. Dugan
We also have photographs from Jess’s seriesEvery Breath We Drewcurrently on display at the gallery. Please stop by CEG or visit us at AIPAD, Booth #204 to see more work!
Floriane deLassée has traveled the world showcasing talents of many people who can carry heavy loads upon their heads. Originally from France, Floriane went to some of the world’s most remote landscapes including East Africa, Ethiopia, and Rwanda in search of subjects for her series, How Much Can You Carry ?. Her project began after she learned of the long line walkers on roads of Africa. Carrying cherished items atop on one’s head is common practice in many parts of the world, and is rather efficient when vehicles are not available. Her aim with this series is to stage each subject balancing items that they value most in life. Make sure to stop by Booth #204 at AIPAD this weekend to see what the people on view cherish most!
Leaving misery on the side, the models show a unique sense of curiosity, fun, and pride in staging themselves, proud to put forward what can be considered in lots of cases as their only survival means. – Floriane deLassée

Circus is composed of figures that tackle the many issues of difference, along with the affects of aging on the mind and body, which can be seen in the arthritic fingers and glazed eyes of her characters. Whether real or imagined, Elizabeth Ernst creates a world that relies on disbelief and suspended reality, peppered with absolute truths. Make sure to check out The G.E. Circus’s newest recruit at Booth: 204 at AIPAD!

My art is a tribute to Nature. It is an offering, a moment of contemplation. In this series, entitled GRACIA, I have chosen to expose nature’s paradox. Breathing new life into branches desiccated by time and to flowers left to grow wild in the fields, I create new spaces. Every living thing I capture has an individuality that I want to share. It is in the simple details wherein divinity lies. People have different interpretations when viewing this series, as experience is unique to each of us, but if you explore it with your heart, you will undoubtedly feel the freedom that nature offers us. – Ysabel Lemay

A large part of my practice as a photographer includes the involvement of my subjects in the creation of the images that represent them. Looking out at the viewer as if looking at themselves in a mirror, the individuals assert their selfhood and resist any imposed or external categorizing system. Once the image joins my installations, each individual becomes part of the larger collection, but is not lost, insisting with his or her intense gaze that we look back. -excerpt from Keliy Anderson-Staley’s [hypen] Americans statement
