episode 16: Interview with artist Krista Svalbonas | EP16 Subtext & Discourse


In what will likely be the last interview for 2019, today I'm speaking with Krista Svalbonas. Krista not only took part in the Jarvis Dooney Postcard Salon but also surprised me in Arles when she booked me to review her portfolio during the opening week of the festival. Krista shares a lot of insight into her project about displaced person camps in Germany which she has been documenting for the past few years, her unique photographic process, as well as how this personal story and shared history is very relevant in these uncertain times.

Her work has been exhibited in a number of exhibitions including at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Howard Yezerski Gallery in Boston, Klompching Gallery and ISE Cultural Foundation in New York.
