Although the show includes such nationally well-known names as Edward Burtynsky and Hank Willis Thomas, you should check out the work of Kate O’Donovan Cook. A 2008 graduate of Baltimore’s Maryland Institute College of Art, the photographer is know for her uncannily theatrical self-portraits.
Also worth looking for are Cynthia Connolly’s “Letters on Top of Buildings.” Though not technically a part of the “How Is the World?” show, several photos from Connolly’s black-and-white series spotlighting architectural signage were recently acquired by the museum and are currently on view. It’s a feather in the cap of the Virginia photographer, a 1985 graduate of the Corcoran College of Art.
