Book Talk: “What Shod I be!!!!?”

Join photographer Jacqueline Silberbush for a presentation of her new book, What Shod I Be!!!!?, a uniquely poetic series about the cycle of a young woman’s life. The book moves with humor and melancholy from her birth through her childhood into her maturity, love, and eros, and culminates with the birth of her child. What Shod I be!!!!? addresses many universal female experiences by weaving together images of different children, girls, and young women to create a semi-fictional composite character. The photographs are taken from ten years of Silberbush’s intimate work in nurseries, toy-strewn houses of strung-out families, rave clubs going wild, beds of lovers, acts of sex, and hospital rooms where new souls come bloodily into the world.
