"Domestic Negotiations is an ongoing project and the result of a personal desire to make work while navigating the demands of a new marriage, motherhood, creative and professional work. In creating the irreversible bonds of family, I understand a life of domesticity to be a negotiation. Now that my hands are deeply plunged into this experience, I live in a constant flow of needs met or missed, a conversation on practical demands, expectations, and fleeting moments that must not go unnoticed. At this stage, feelings are more intensified and there is no rest. It is my hope that this work conveys the emotional and physical tenderness of a family while revealing the raw and delicate nature of the relationships we try so desperately to preserve." – Lesly Deschler Canossi

I first met and was enchanted by Lesly Deschler Canossi's work at Ruben Natal-San Miguel and Rafael Fuchs first annual "15 Minutes of Fame" Portfolio Review in Bushwick last month. With an MFA in Photography and Digital Imaging from Maryland Institute College of Art, Lesly works in New York City as an artist, as well as an instructor at the International Center of Photography (ICP) and owner of Fiber Ink Studio, a printing and drum scanning studio producing museum quality pigment prints.
