A Long Mournful Cry


Gallery, ongoing

Karalee Kuchar’s A Long Mournful Cry is a series of photographs that explores the struggle we experience through long periods of opposition. Using the Great Salt Lake as a landscape for reflection, Kuchar places herself in unknown places to seek transformation and healing. The ritual performances documented by her camera reflect her own experiences, mirrored through her interactions with the desert landscape. In this body of work, she engages with others through visual communication in ways that transcend our differences and unite us in the universal experience of opposition, endurance and preservation.
