Clarissa Bonet‘s solo exhibition Urban Constructs opens today at the Southeast Museum of Photography in Datyona, Florida, featuring photographs from her series Stray Light as well as City Space. The exhibition runs until September 28, 2019.
City Space is an ongoing photographic exploration of the urban environment and my perception of it. I am interested in the physical space of the city and its emotional and psychological impact on the body. These photographs reconstruct mundane events in the city that I have personally experienced or witnessed in public.
Clarissa Bonet lives and works in Chicago. Her work explores aspects of the urban space in both a physical and psychological context. Her work has been exhibited nationally, internationally, and resides in the collections of The Museum of Contemporary Photography’s MPP collection, The Southeast Museum of Photography, and The Haggerty Museum.
