Joseph Maida Exclusive Print


Older Daughter, ________….Younger Daughter, ________, (1943) 2018.

This xXx limited edition print complements Joseph Maida’s book Born Free and Equal, in which Maida reimagines Ansel Adams’ 1943 eponymous work documenting the Manzanar Relocation Center. In Older Daughter ,________….Younger Daughter,________, (1943) 2018 Maida combines a two-page spread from the Library of Congress’ copy of Adams’ 1944 MoMA catalog with two of Adams’ original negatives. The resulting print reveals a layered accumulation of observation, notation, intervention, and erasure intersecting Adams’ source material, the Library of Congress’ system of classification, and Maida’s engagement with these historic documents in l
ight of current affairs.

Maida calls this work “a tribute to upstanding American citizens, who were incarcerated because of ethnic origin and who remain under-recognized in U.S. history.”
