People swipe their digital devices hundreds of times a day, leaving behind trails of smudges and streaks on their screens. A new exhibition of photographs by former MTV journalist Tabitha Soren captures these fingerprints and greasy smears on the surface of images. Focusing on the element of touch, photographs in Tabitha Soren: Surface Tension range from the personal, such as a daughter blowing a kiss to her mother, to the global, with images of the damaging human touch on the environment in places such as the Great Barrier Reef and Greenland. Surface Tension features 20 small- and large-scale photographs, 14 of which are on view to the public for the first time.
Tabitha Soren (b. 1967) is a former Peabody Award-winning journalist for MTV and NBC news. Soren’s work is held in many private and public collections throughout the US, and her first monograph, Fantasy Life, was published in April 2017.
