Amani Willett

Amani Willett is a Brooklyn and Boston-based photographer whose practice is driven by conceptual ideas surrounding family, history, memory, and the social environment.

Disquiet (Damiani, 2013) and The Disappearance of Joseph Plummer (Overlapse, 2017) and “A Parallel Road (Overlapse 2020)” were selected by Photo-Eye as “best books” of the year and have been highlighted in over 70 publications including Photograph Magazine, PDN, Hyperallergic, Lensculture, New York Magazine, 1000 Words, NPR, The British Journal of Photography, Collector Daily and Buzzfeed and recommended by Todd Hido, Elisabeth Biondi (former Visuals Editor of The New Yorker), Vince Aletti and Joerg Colberg (Conscientious), among others.

Amani’s photographs are also featured in the books American Geography (SF Moma/Radius Books, 2021), Bystander: A History of Street Photography (2017 edition, Laurence King Publishing), Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson), New York: In Color (Abrams), and have been published widely in places including The Atlantic, American Photography, Newsweek, Harper’s, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine and The New York Review of Books.

In addition to his artistic practice, Amani is an Assistant Professor of Photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston.

Virginie Rebetez

Virginie Rebetez (1979, CH) lives in Lausanne. Her body of work is regularly presented in museums, galleries or festivals in Switzerland and internationally. Rebetez’s work received various awards including La Bourse des arts plastiques du Canton de Vaud (2019, CH), L’Enquête photographique fribourgeoise (2018, CH), The Swiss Design Awards (2014, CH). She participated in several artistic residency programs, in Cairo (2017, EG), New York (2014, US) and Johanessburg (2013, SA). Her work, Malleus Maleficarum, is currently shown in several cities in China, in a group show, Between Mountains, Hills & Lakes, curated by Yining He and Pro Helvetia Shanghai.

{…} What is often said about Virginie Rebetez’s work is that she “makes the dead speak”. Since ten years, she tries to sense and embody the invisible, to create traces and imprints of what is absent and challenge the medium of Photography through new visual narrative forms. Using Photography is a way for her “to create materiality to what is not there anymore, to give form to what doesn’t have a body.” Elisa Rusca, independant curator & art historian.
