Abraham Family photographs
A collection of 27 8x10 silver gelatin prints that includes photographs of Dana Abraham's family. Each photograph is black and white with white borders, and spans from Fall 2022 to Spring 2023. Most of the photographs are of young women and girls of the Abraham family, with some elderly members of the family also included. The photographs are representative of the Abraham family's bond. Statement from creator and donor Dana Abraham: "The bond my family shares is something truly extraordinary. I wanted to capture special moments with my family to provide them with a means of documenting our shared love and experiences. Some of the works focus on my sisters and the tribulations of youth, while others expand the rest of the family, portraying the intimate nature of familial bonds"
