Between 2007 and 2013, American photographer Carolyn Drake made several visits to Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in northwest China, where she engaged in a collaborative work with the people she met, asking them to draw on and alter her photographs. In 2017, SFMOMA acquired the entire set of 32 unique photo-collages made for the Wild Pigeon project. This series will be presented in a newly dedicated space for recent contemporary photography acquisitions in the Pritzker Center for Photography.
