About The Artwork

Lost in the Loud Silence examines the unraveling of one woman's identity, based on a friend’s true story, as she strives to regain stability during a break in her marriage. It is a meditation on feeling lost and disconnected, and the surprising ways in which we comfort and challenge ourselves on the path towards discovery. Wrestling with herself and her feelings toward her husband, she uses objects around her to search for clues. Conversing with her owl guide, leaving bread crumb trails, arguing with herself in her wedding dress, talking to her husband on the phone, listening to the soothing sounds of a conch shell, all play a role in her journey, until she is surprised by an answer. Exploring the Lacanian notion that we are transformed by images of ourselves, be it in mirrors, photographs, or through the eyes of others, I worked with an actor to visualize what an unraveling might look like. I wanted to create something new by stacking various truths into one scenario, and explore the emotional terrain of an identity in flux. Naomi White, Brooklyn, 2013

Naomi White is a feminist, artist, and educator, working on ideas at the intersection of political ecology and photography. Focusing on the transformative power of photography to affect desire and change, much of her work questions how we can shift our focus away from the current racist, capitalist model of domination to one of equity and collective voice, for the sake of all people, animals and the planet. White is the winner of PDN’s Objects of Desire award, has attended several artist residencies, and exhibited throughout North America and Europe, including at the art fairs Scope, Art Basel Miami, and Photo LA. Her work has been published in PDN, The Brooklyn Rail, Cut Me Up Magazine, Uncertain States, among others. White holds an MFA in Photography and Related Media from SVA in New York, a Post Baccalaureate in Photography from the San Francisco Art institute, and a BA in English Literature from San Francisco State. She is currently the Chair of photography at the New York Film Academy in Burbank, California.
