DESCRIPTION

Schneider Gallery is pleased to present a new body of work by Chicago-based photographer Jennifer Greenburg. In Revising History, Greenburg utilizes found vernacular snapshots of events, portraits, and tourist photographs to design her own past. Part performer, part photographer, Greenburg creates her own personal history through reenactment. She appropriates various roles and commandeers the selected moments by digitally suturing herself into the original image. The final pieces are very literally a manufactured history, one that looks and feels authentic and is littered with enough relatable moments that we can identify with the photographs via our own collective experiences.
