For thirty years, Wendy Ewald has taken an unusual artistic path exploring the visual imaginations of children and adults around the world in a sustained and evolving artistic project. Addressing conceptual, formal, and narrative concerns, Ewald's work challenges traditional notions of documentary photography and the role of the artist. Using creative collaboration as the basis for the artistic process, Ewald has worked in communities in Labrador, Appalachia, Colombia, India, South Africa, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Holland, Mexico, and North Carolina. This retrospective exhibition, organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art and the Fotomuseum, Winterthur, featured approximately two hundred photographs representing 14 bodies of work made in collaboration with children in many of those communities. Ewald was an artist in residence at the Kemper Museum.
