Jet Pack – photograph by Gary Oliveira

Helen Smith Gallery
Dates: 9/21-12/8/2020

Gary Oliveira, Green River faculty member, began this series of photography over sixteen years ago as he photographed his family. Early on in the project, he directed and collaborated with them when he saw the right moment, interesting light or a particular expression. Later, he watched and documented their self-awareness and creativity as they tried on the different roles of their identity. The most recent work is a combination of these ideas along with a visual record of progression and change. the Helen Smith Gallery at Green River College is currently closed due to COVID-19, but you can enjoy this exhibit and an author talk online.
