A revealing portrait of the breadth and depth of contemporary puppetry, this exhibition showcases the work of Brooklyn-based photographer and puppeteer Richard Termine, who is renowned for his performing arts photography for major institutions and outlets such as Sesame Street, The New York Times, Lincoln Center, Cirque du Soleil, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Jim Henson Foundation.

An Emmy Award winner for his work on Sesame Street at a time when there was increasing interest in the possibilities of puppet and performing arts photography, Termine draws attention to the ways that performers and objects interact in choreographies that are insightful, tragic, and comic. His photographs are remarkable in their ability to suggest sequences of movement in a still image.

This exhibition was originally organized by Richard Termine and the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry at the University of Connecticut.
