Kimberlé Crenshaw in her 2015 Washington Post opinion piece described intersectionality as “…Vulnerabilities that reflect the intersections of racism, sexism, class oppression, transphobia, able-ism, and more.”

This exhibition showcases the results of students’ explorations and examinations of their identities, and how the intersections of these identities impact their lives. Many of the photos represent identities that are seldom reflected in the media. Through the lens of reflective photography, and critical writing practice, students reveal and process both the power and the pain that lie at their identity intersections.
