Head over to the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, NC to check out Reveal: Portraits by Carrie Levy, the solo exhibition of San Francisco based photographer, Carrie Levy.

“Carrie Levy’s portraits reveal everything and nothing at the same time. This solo exhibition features photographs selected from several series Levy created over the past decade and a half. Vulnerable, disquieting, and unsettling, her portraits explore the politics of representation: the gaze of the photographer and the subject of the gaze. Although she has photographed women frequently in her work, this exhibition presents male portraits “under the microscope of a severe female gaze,” as Levy puts it. Works in the exhibition are selected primarily from her series Domestic Stages, Polaroids, and You Before All. “
