psychodrama


i enjoyed these photographs by Jill Frank, from her upcoming show Psychodrama, opening September 12th at Golden Gallery in Chicago.

Frank says that the show "expands on the form of psychotherapy by asking her subjects to sit before the camera to record & memorialize some of their most traumatic, awkward, and embarrassing moments. The creation of these missing pictures negates the generally accepted custom of employing photography to anchor memories of happy times & celebration."

This emotional connection between actor and role now seems banal, but for Moreno it was a lightning bolt, generating the idea of reversing the process. "Patients" could act out their personal problems on the stage as a form of psychotherapy: thus the term, "psychodrama."
