Lorna Simpson


“I started to concentrate more upon how the viewer looks at photographs… I would insert my own text or my own specific reading of the image to give the viewer something they might not interpret or surmise, due to their “educated” way of looking at images, and reading them for their emotional, psychological, and/or sociological values. So I would start to interject these things that the photograph would not speak of and that I felt needed to be revealed, but that couldn’t be revealed from just looking at an image.” (Lorna Simpson)
