Habeas Corpus at Adjacent to Life


Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Habeas Corpus: Photographs by Michael Sean Edwards.

With Habeas Corpus, Edwards exhibits large-scale prints repurposed from negatives he took in New York from 1978-1980. As Edwards states, “These photographs were not intended to be memories, but inevitably, given the passage of time, they are. They are also artifacts, and I thought it might be interesting to present them that way. There are several histories involved. The places, the mechanisms, the images I made, and my relationship to all of them.”

The show runs through Sept. 27th at Adjacent to Life’s current pop-up gallery, housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B).
