Megan Pobywajlo approaches the photograph as a piece of text, embedded with layers of intellectual, emotional, and cultural meaning, and eager to be in conversation with its viewers. Photography, or rather making an image, for Pobywajlo is defined by its democratic potentiality, where anything is worthy of being photographed. She magnifies and celebrates the everyday and mundane, creating resolute and boldly colorful images of vegetables, utensils, and scissors, for example. Yet, the artist questions the access of the medium and who actually has the ability to make pictures. In this regard, Pobywajlo takes images that demystify the pureness of the photograph by revealing its realities at the edges, such as the curled of backdrop paper or the leg of a tripod. By dispelling the limits of photography, the artist broadens the capacity and impact of the image, handling each one as a phrase or a word.
