Imagist, Seed Lynn, submits deep listening as a liberation practice. Whether sensually, technically, or artfully applied, Lynn greets the lens as an altered state through which listening and witnessing make voice necessary. This state invades his work, frames subjects with honesty, and in turn, shapes spaces where stories find students. Lynn’s studies concern how we remember ourselves, who that memory honors, and how remembrance itself, in the face of oppression, is a cathartic act of love and protest.
