Lydia will discuss the process and the intent behind her work. Taking us on a personal journey, she looks beneath the surface to examine what we communicate and hold back from others. Combining still photography and video, her work looks within to speak to the universal feelings of love, longing, and the things we keep silent.

Lydia Panas’ work explores our collective societal relationship to women. Her work is attentive to the psyche and what lies below the surface. Through photography and video, she investigates questions about who we are and what we want to become. Her focus is on our interior lives – what we show, what we say and especially what we hide. A first-generation American raised between Greece and the United States, her sense of home has always felt elusive.  Settling on a seventy-acres in Pennsylvania, the natural landscape and family are the foundation of her work.

Panas’ work has been exhibited widely in museums and galleries in the U.S. and internationally.  Her works are represented in public and private collections including the Brooklyn Museum, Bronx Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Palm Springs Art Museum, Allentown Art Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago, among others.  Her work has appeared in many periodicals such as The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, The Village Voice, French Photo, and Hyperallergic.  Lydia has degrees from Boston College, School of Visual Arts, and New York University/International Center of Photography.  She is the recipient of a Whitney Museum Independent Study Fellowship and a CFEVA Fellowship.  Two monographs of her work have been published, Falling from Grace (Conveyor Arts 2016) and The Mark of Abel (Kehrer Verlag 2012) which was named a best coffee table book by the Daily Beast.  She divides her time between Kutztown, Pennsylvania and New York City.
