Greta Pratt joins the podcast this week to discuss her work, which explores themes of American patriotism, colonialism, myth, and identity as well as memory and climate change. Having had solo exhibitions as recent as 2021 at the Andrews Gallery at The College of William & Mary in addition to her first in 1994 at the Minneapolis Photographer’s Gallery in Minnesota, Pratt’s work has been displayed and enjoyed for decades.

Pratt has published four books, the most recent of which is 2020’s Nineteen Lincolns, which highlights nineteen different members of The Association of Lincoln Presenters that were each tasked with presenting “his idea of Lincoln for the camera.” Accompanying each evocative portrait are personal insights from each Lincoln impersonator about what exactly inspired their pursuance of becoming impersonators.
