Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC, Features Photographs by Amanda Yaggy
Staying Up Late - Photographs by Amanda
Yaggy is scheduled to open in the Allenton
Gallery of the Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC, on July 12 and
continue through Aug. 13, 2001.
Yaggy will be exhibiting her black & white photography which capture glimpses of various types of nightlife. Her high contrast photographs are constantly revealing new stories to viewers as well as to herself. "I am interested in the ways my photographs don't necessarily capture anything for me - instead of stopping time they can exaggerate it, instead of illustrating my life they can show me something newmy favorite thing about photography might be the murkiness that comes with working from images of 'real life'."
Originally from Boston, MA, Yaggy moved to Durham, NC with her family in 1980. She received her BA in Art History from Boston University and went on to study Photography under Brian Young, Jeff Mermelstein, David Armstrong and Susan Kae Grant. She has also worked as assistants to Bern Nobel, I.C.P. and Michal Heron.
