March 18 – April 10, 2022

In 2021, as part of a Tuttle Creative Residency at Haverford College, artist Jennifer Karady offered a prompt to students and faculty. These photos are a selection of the resulting student and faculty work.

In her ongoing photography project Soldiers’ Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan, Karady works with U.S. veterans from the wars to create staged photographs that combine events from their experiences as soldiers with themes about their adjustment to life back in the U.S.

Work from Karady’s series Soldiers’ Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan is on view in the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery as part of the exhibition Performing Past-Present: Transforming Reenactment
