Fusing image with identity making, portrait photography on view at this year's edition of The Photography Show will range from selections from contemporaries including Alejandro Gonzalez, Lissa Rivera and Mickalene Thomas (her portrait, Tell Me What You're Thinking is featured in the exhibition), to such legendary icons as Alfred Stieglitz, who was the partner of iconic painter Georgia O'Keeffe, who is also featured in The Photography Show. Powerful and poignant, these images reveal the strengths and vulnerabilities of their subjects while evoking timeless narratives about desire, beauty, and freedom.
