About the Exhibit

Every day since 1987 photographer Karl Baden has made a photograph of his face, a comment on the use of photography as both documentation and visual narrative.  This practice continued after his diagnosis for aggressive prostate cancer in 2000, and the result is Baden’s autobiographical record of his experience—one that served to keep him focused and emotionally stable.  His exploration of ephemeral self portraiture touches upon many aspects of photographic history.  However, Baden’s relationship to his daughter forms an emotional backbone to the piece, one that lends poignancy to on-going concerns.  “After cancer, one lives with the hope that the disease has left the body,” the artist remarks.  “One learns to accept that it doesn’t leave the mind.”
