This UNF Gallery exhibition features the work of Priya Kambli. Born in India, Kambli moved to the United States in 1993 at the age of eighteen, a few years after the death of her parents, to pursue her education. Carefully stowed within her single, small suitcase was a cache of family photographs which became the basis of Kambli’s creative work-a growing body of images exploring migration, transience, and cultural identity. Her lyrical photographic compositions are not only a rich synthesis of light, pattern, and texture, but also a moving testament to the tangible, archival nature of photography.

This exhibition is made possible through generous support from the Devereux Family.
