This event is a conversation between 2021 Aftermath Project grant winner Kris Graves and Aftermath Project founder, and VII photographer, Sara Terry.
Their talk will focus on Kris’ grant-winning project, Privileged Mediocrity and the Deceived Within. Kris will show images he made during his grant year, as he explores systematic unfairness in America – and talks with Sara about his critique of the ways racism, capitalism and power have shaped the U.S.
They will both share ideas about what goes into writing an American Aftermath grant proposal, and the kinds of projects that might be a good fit for the grant. Sara will also talk about the judging process and what judges look for.
The event will conclude with an audience Q&A session.
