Catalogue Note

"While a picture cannot possibly fill in for a person or for lived experience, it can convey a point of view, or a sensibility. For Lawler, a picture is not the event but how we understand the event and what connections we make. Her photographs communicate with a wonderfully specific, intelligent and attuned voice articulating humor and laughter, sorrow and moral indignation." James Welling
