George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.
