A poignant visual chronicle unfolds at the upcoming solo exhibition, “Remember Me,” showcasing the captivating work of Bay Area artist and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Preston Gannaway. Mark your calendars for this immersive experience running from March 6th to May 18th, 2024.

“Remember Me” is a testament to the enduring power of photography as a storytelling medium. This ongoing project, now in its remarkable 19th year, began with a deeply personal encounter. Published by GOST Books in 2023, the series chronicles the life of a young boy growing up in New Hampshire after the devastating loss of his mother at the tender age of four.

Gannaway’s masterful lens captures a tapestry of intimate moments. Everyday details, from a child’s favorite toy to the comforting embrace of a familiar landscape, are woven together with heartfelt portraits, creating a profound longitudinal visual essay. Through this evocative sequence, we witness the boy’s journey of loss, mortality, and the bittersweet process of coming of age.

The early photographs from this very series catapulted Gannaway to national recognition, earning her the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography in 2008. This prestigious award serves as a testament to the raw emotional honesty and profound storytelling ability embedded within Gannaway’s work.

Born and raised in North Carolina, Preston Gannaway has carved a niche for herself as a documentarian of the human experience. Her artistic vision consistently delves into the intimate narratives of American communities and landscapes. Currently residing in Sonoma County, California, Gannaway’s artistic journey has been enriched by prestigious residencies at Light Work and the University of Montana. Her work is regularly featured in renowned publications like The New York Times Magazine and sought after by brands like ESPN and Airbnb. Gannaway’s captivating photographs have found a permanent home in prestigious collections, including the High Museum of Art and Stanford University.

“Remember Me” promises to be an exhibition that transcends the boundaries of mere observation. Gannaway’s masterful storytelling invites viewers to embark on a deeply personal journey, fostering empathy and understanding for the profound impact of loss and the resilience of the human spirit. Don’t miss this opportunity to encounter the evocative power of Gannaway’s photography and witness the unforgettable story captured in “Remember Me.”
