This exhibition features selections from Floyd’s archive of photographs exploring the genre of self-portraiture. Spanning thirty-five years, the ongoing series comprises thousands of images that form an intimate account of Floyd’s daily life, and tackle profound questions of ritual, purpose, and the assumed agency of photography.
