Tal Sofia’s graduate thesis exhibition “I am so afraid of words” is an examination of photographs as material objects that can be touched, carried, held, caressed and tossed away. Through multi-faceted research done over the course of a summer in Berlin and winter in Toronto, Tal Sofia follows a collection of early 20th century postcards handed down to her by her great-grandmother and namesake Sophie Rosenbaum. This creative journey—positioned in the unique intersection between photography, graphic design, and text—has resulted in a printed object consisting of original texts and photography, presented as part of a larger installation at Toronto’s Ignite Gallery.
