REFLECTED is a visual story of past and present that sheds light on the importance of representation in museum spaces, spaces that often exclude the stories, faces and bodies of marginalized communities, Black, Indigenous, and people of color.

Set against the dramatic, yet complicated, backdrop of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's historic galleries, the series features diverse millennial artists and visionaries from Boston as they interact with the art and architecture of the past--each individual photographed is celebrated as a work of art and the unique embodiment of their own personal history and identity.

The images reflect a moment in time as we redefine, reimagine and create a present and future that mirrors us all. 

Featuring: Paloma Valenzuela, Chimel Idiokitas, Porsha Olayiwola, Aiden Nguyen, Sumaiya Zama, and Feda Eid (self-portrait).
