Ceremony: Julian Taylor Raiford ’21

An old man wearing a hat looking into a handheld mirror Julian Raiford’s Senior Thesis exhibit opens on May 6th and runs through Commencement at the Eli Marsh Gallery in Fayerweather. Comprised of a series of family photos, Raiford intimately examines the “intergenerational cycles of struggle, triumph, and joy that exist within families and create patterns of softness and violence.”
