Acompañando a la exposición Bienal FotoFocus 2022, Free as They Want to Be considera el papel histórico y contemporáneo que la fotografía y el cine han desempeñado para recordar los legados de la esclavitud y sus secuelas, mientras examina la vida social de los afroamericanos en varios lugares, incluida la tierra, en casa, en álbumes fotográficos, en sitios históricos y en la memoria pública.

La publicación, que toma su nombre del libro de James Baldwin de 1961 Nadie sabe mi nombre , presenta a unos 20 artistas que trabajan en fotografía, video, serigrafía, proyección e instalación de medios mixtos, todos los cuales exploran las posibilidades de la libertad. Su búsqueda de ser “tan libres como quieran serlo” se visualiza en el tema que exploran, así como en su impulso por innovar las prácticas estéticas en los medios fotográficos.

Los fotógrafos y artistas incluyen: Terry Adkins, Radcliffe Bailey, JP Ball Studio, Sadie Barnett, Dawoud Bey, Sheila Pree Bright, Bisa Butler, Omar Victor Diop, Nona Faustine, Adama Delphine Fawundu, Daesha Devon Harris, Isaac Julien, Catherine Opie, Yelaine Rodríguez, Hank Willis Thomas, Lava Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems, Wendel White y William Earle Williams.
