Jennifer Greenburg seems never to drop from the headlines. Both Revising History exhibitions at jdc Fine Art were critically reviewed (while we were in the San Diego location). The first, in 2014 by Robert Pincus in CultureBuzz; the second, in 2016 by Lauren Buscemi in Art Ltd., with other editorials in-between. This latest feature by the UK-based photography periodical marks the first major international press for the artist.
We are happy to share the following excerpt of an editorial by Susan Burnstine:
When Greenburg adorns herself in one of her many vintage outfits, she admits she feels glamorous. 'I am not a person with problems anymore. I become someone else - someone else who only exists in photographs. Yet, that person - that icon of a person - is something the photograph made up. She is someone without strife, someone without obstacles. We believe so deeply in the truth of "her" that we measure ourselves against what we think we see in the picture. And when we cannot measure up, we then begin to blame the times we live in. Some say, "Oh, people used to be more civilized back then." This is in fact not true. We revise our past, that includes inequality, racism, misogyny and numerous other hardships we conveniently forget.'
