Stacy Platt uses photography to speak about vulnerability, memory, loss and the mundane experiences of life. Influenced by the writing of Marguerite Duras, the multivalent work of artists such as William Kentridge, Danh Voh, and the Provoke and post-Provoke era of Japanese photography, Stacy’s work is characterized by an interest in exploring the multiple—and sometimes unreliable—versions of self and personal history that we all contain, as well as the contradictory threads of collective identity that serve to both constrain and connect us to one another.
She received her B.A. in Humanities from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and her M.F.A. in Photography from Columbia College of Art in Chicago. Her work has been shown at the Houston Center for Photography, the Midwest Center for Photography, the University of North Dakota’s Memory, Bone and Myth exhibit, many online curated projects and exhibitions, and she was a 2015 Critical Mass finalist. Stacy presently teaches photography at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and also is the editor for the Society of Photographic Education's flagship publication, Exposure. She has been composing longform essays on photography at http://www.the-space-in-between.com since 2004.
