Join us for Jonna McKone’s exhibition reception, “the bluest sky.” This exhibition is the culmination of Jonna's six week artist residency at PlatteForum. "The bluest sky" will showcase site-based photographic exposures using a large format camera and other experimental photographic processes she has explored with PlatteForum's ArtLab interns.
Jonna McKone is a photographer, filmmaker and freelance producer and director based in Baltimore, Maryland. Spanning video, large format photography and alternative processes, her work explores the connections between land, power, and communities. She is currently working on a project that explores land use histories in the mid-Atlantic. She recently was a fellow at the Center for Documentary Studies where she developed a collaborative photography project which will be published as a photobook in the fall of 2021. Her work has shown in film festivals, galleries and museums and has been supported by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation’s Rubys Artist Grant, the Metropolitan Visual Arts Center, Skidmore’s Storytellers’ Institute, the Lewis Hine Fellowship, and the National Edward R. Murrow Awards.
