“The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma is a series of photographs made in the shadows of a dark side of me that I have, as of late, begun to re-explore. Without meaning to make them so, these photographs reveal my fears and private memories, all the things that are wrapped up, not always so neatly, in someone’s life.” – Maggie Steber
Join Maggie Steber for an artist talk at Leica Gallery Boston on May 18, 2018 from 5-7PM where her exhibition The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma is on view from May 3 – July 8, 2018.
The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma is a provocative photographic sequence by Maggie Steber. Steber, a 2017 Guggenheim Foundation Fellow, was awarded this prestigious grant for The Secret Garden, an ongoing series that embodies Steber’s subconscious captured by her alter-ego, Lily LaPalma. The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma represents a complete reinvention for Steber, a striking departure from her extensive documentary photography body of work.
