S. Billie Mandle conducts extensive research into the histories and politics of each of her subjects, which include a home for refugees, a hospital for the mentally ill, and the California Missions. She will talk about her recent book, Reconciliation, made over ten years of photographing confessionals throughout the United States.  The book offers a queer perspective on religious spaces as they relate to the fallibility of faith and forgiveness. Mandle is an associate professor of Photography at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
