These are photographs from two ongoing series. The first, Band of Outsiders, followed my two brothers during the years after our father’s death in 2001. While photographing their lives I also drew on feelings of isolation from my own youth. The project challenges the notion of childhood as a period of naïveté and simplicity and explores moments of detachment that are experienced in times of fragility and uncertainty. The concept for my latest project, Disconnected, stems directly from this series of my brothers. Photographing them opened up an insight towards moments of detachment, whether found in the look on someone’s face or a scene that I happen upon. Photographing these scenarios allows me to investigate ideas of abandonment, disconnection and isolation in a more abstract manner.

Rachael Woodson
Photographer

Born in Bern in 1984, Rachael Woodson is an American artist who lives and works in Paris. After finishing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at the School of Visual Arts (New York) and an artist residency at l’École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie (Arles, France), she completed a Master in Photography and Contemporary Art at l’Université de Paris 8 in 2016. She continues to participate in research groups and collaborations that consider the photographic medium in a larger, interdisciplinary context. Her work methods favor forms that reuse and reactivate images from the archive, that focus on process as opposed to finality and that allow for a fluidity between different artistic gestures. The objective is not to arrive at any one definitive response, but to react, and to propose atmospheres of energy and contemplation. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and independent art spaces in France, the United States and Japan.
