Amy Powell: Only let people who love you photograph you.

The Contemporary Dayton presents an exciting new body of work by Dayton-based photographer, Amy Powell. Only let people who love you photograph you. is made up of hundreds of images the artist selected from social media that were tagged “Dayton, OH,” which she then printed and arranged specifically for the exhibition. 

Working in the pictorial tradition of American photographer Emmet Gowin (b. 1941), Powell is known for her intimate portraits of her family. Noted for their vivid colors, precise composition, and evocative allure, Powell strives to capture the banal beauty of the suburbs. For this project, however, she turns the notion of artist/photographer/curator on its head, and selects other’s images based on their striking composition, absurdity, poignancy, and visually compelling qualities; collectively, creating a portrait of a place and its citizens living their lives during perilous times. Powell’s work has been published nationally in TIME magazine, The New York TimesThe Washington PostElleThe Wall Street JournalThe Guardian, and more. Collectively, this selection of images becomes a portrait of a place and its citizens living their lives during perilous times.

Amy Powell: Only let people who love you photograph you. is courtesy of the artist and is organized by The Co as part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial.

Powell will be holding an artist talk on Friday, November 4th, at 6 PM. The talk can be attended in the gallery or watched online at codayton.org.
