look up and listen
Sally Yërin Oh’s thirty-five-millimeter camera represents the antithesis of her millennial, twenty-two-iPhone-selfies-per-day generation. It requires patience, observation, and intention. These one-off photos celebrate the unsung New Yorkers we pass by everyday. Look Up, see their humility. Listen to their silent power, respectfully. Collaged with poems about race, heartbreak, and solace paired with the music that kept her company during specific times, Look Up and Listen is an invitation. Experience how a multitasker who chooses to live in a constant state of sensory overload addresses her privilege as she sees, hears, feels, and riffs off the world.
