“If This Wasn't Me...”
During a recent six month photography workshop, Todd Edward Herman collaborated with Pueblo Regional Center* residents to produce the images in this exhibit. While Herman is clearly shooting his photographs from an outsider's perspective, the photographs made by Pueblo Regional Center* photographers offer new and intimate looks at the often disregarded beauty and mystery within their own home environments. Herman then presents all of the photographs together on the same artistic level, delicately crossing the line that separates teacher and student, photographer and subject, outsider and community, personal agency and full psychiatric guardianship.

“If This Wasn't Me...” is an intimate and poetic collection of images -- moving viewers beyond frequently projected stereotypes of pity and adulation -- mindful of everyone's equal need and ability to meet life's contingencies on their own terms.
