The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) announces Kinship: Photography and Connection, featuring six contemporary photographers whose work results from deep relationships including friendship, ties to place, to community and beyond.

On view at SFMOMA from May 20 through November 12, 2023, Kinship: Photography and Connection brings together over 80 captivating works by photographers who share a special affinity with their subjects: Farah Al Qasimi, Mercedes Dorame, Jarod Lew, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Alessandra Sanguinetti and Deanna Templeton. Whether the connections explored in their photographs are familial, platonic, romantic, cultural or geographic, relationships are fundamental to each artist’s practice. Four of the six photographers — Dorame, Sanguinetti, Sepuya and Templeton — live in California.

In Kinship: Photography and Connection, each of the six artists will have a dedicated gallery to present photographs from a single series or a selection of work drawn from across their practice. More information here
