Presentation: Hair Pieces: Ponytails and Souvenirs by Rebecca Drolen
Hair Pieces: Ponytails and Souvenirsdiscusses the ever-changing vernacular of photography in the 21st century and the expansion of the traditional foundation of the medium. "Hair Pieces explores the fickle relationship most have with their body hair. We consider some hair very desirable and grow and groom it with care, while we treat other hair as shameful and cover or remove it. Once hair has become disconnected from our bodies, we treat it with disgust, yet it has an archival, lasting presence that outlives the body and defies death and decay."
