Artist Statement

Look closely. What do you see? What do you feel? Can you capture that moment?

I make work for the people who feel that there is something more out there. We can’t quite place it, but we can feel it. My work challenges the idea of reality, calling into question the very purpose of photography as a means of capturing and expressing the world. My photos capture a glitch in the system. A moment where the viewer has to stop and question what the photographer is doing and why they are doing it. Photography, which was designed to be a tool for telling the truth about the world, becomes a tool of distortion. The viewer cannot, and should not, feel comfortable with the image in front of them. Looking more deeply and thinking more critically, they may begin to uncover new truths about what they see.

Photography is a reflection of my own relationship with the world and a means by which I ground myself in reality.

Maddy Noah is a photographer from New York City. She is completing her BA and BFA at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and studied at the Burren College of Art in Ireland in Fall 2023. Her images deconstruct the boundaries between people and nature as she explores her own relationship with the external world. She is interested in themes of perception, reality, confusion, and distortion, especially as they challenge the idea of the self.
