Ryann Casey | Loss Event – Ep.76

“My first trip after Sarah passed was to the Grand Canyon…so I think that trip and that sense of awe…felt like I was connected to something outside of myself.” This episode was recorded during Ryann Casey’s artist talk about her show, Loss Event, at the JKC Gallery. Ryann and I talk about combining the personal loss of her friend Sarah, with the public loss of national park land as a means to explore the grieving process and how we don’t allow ourselves to fully explore grief. Ryann is a Philadelphia/New Jersey based artist, curator, and organizer. She has exhibited in and around Philadelphia and NYC while also working as an adjunct Professor of Photography, Art History and Critical Theory in New Jersey and currently teaches Art History and Photography at MCCC. Casey holds a BA in Photography with a minor in Gender Studies from Stockton University and an MFA/MS in Photography and Art History from Pratt Institute. https://www.instagram.com/ryann.casey/ https://www.facebook.com/ryannmcasey Visit realphotoshow.com @realphotoshow on Twitter/IG/FB
