Jung Society benefit at the swiss embassy

On June 7, 2019, the Jung Society was honored to present John Hill as this year’s Jungian Scholar of Distinction. Beloved for the poetic force of his speaking, writing and teaching, this Zurich-based training analyst addressed our deepest needs and longings to attain a sense of belonging to self, others, and place: to be at home in the world. After John Hill's lecture EXILE AND HOMECOMING, Personal and Archetypal Narratives in Times of Strife, James Hollis and John Hill discussed the theme of "Home" and the specifically human need to create a world of shared meaningful experiences. 

Profits from ticket sales went the NEW Jung Society Scholarship Fund. The Jung Society thanks everyone who attended the event and contributed to the Fund!

We also thank our invited photographers and music DJ who shared their extraordinary images and music tracks from around the world, interpreting the theme of "Exile and Homecoming".

Each photographer provided eight images, which we offer for your viewing enjoyment and continued engagement with our work. The virtual exhibit is available through August 2019. The photographers may be contacted directly through the email addresses associated with their bios.  

"For some, home is an expanse—the body, an inner life, planet Earth, or a space in which to create."

My photography is a vehicle I use to understand our world. It also is a way I can share how I see and feel with others. My hope is something alights within the viewer which will enable them to see with eyes other than the ones they’ve always been looking through.

I strive to make fun, timeless photos that look just as good today as they will 25 years from now. Authentic moments. No props, not a lot of editing—just beautiful pictures that capture this moment in time before it slips away.

Henry Holdren
Washington, DC

I work in broadcast motion media, but in my photography, I capture the beauty of the ordinary—when it isn’t so ordinary. My images intend to remind us of the security we hold in our day-to-day lives. They trigger an inner peace we feel with the routines of home, family, and the familiar.

Mark Mikkelsen

I view photography as a way of displaying my view of the world. My professional work involves visualizing the human brain, but I am always thinking about how a particular feeling or view could be best captured. My photos are diverse—capturing moments that are both fleeting and eternal. 

BD (Barbi) Richardson
Washington, DC

My photographs are scenes etched into our souls, but they are quickly vanishing from the national landscape. Structures, once anchors of communities, are left—abandoned. Technically, I use long exposures to capture movement, symbolizing time moving forward in the face of the ephemeral lifespan.

Indebted to music, I strive to manifest the transformative power of sonic language in my sets. Through this medium, I explore the delicate alchemy that communicates a soundtrack for our deeper, unifying story, and a return to the Self.
