Point of View (Looking Narrowly): April 6-30, 2016
Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White Street, NYC. 4/6 – 4/30/2016.
Reception: Tuesday, April 5, 6 – 8 pm.
Gallery-wide show on the theme of photographers’ choice of different visual points of view. Each of the solo shows in the gallery record interesting visual qualities found in the mundane, commonplace world around us, when seen from a specific, physical point of view.
Included are ‘Looking Down’, ‘Looking Up’, ‘Looking Closely’, ‘Looking Through’.. and my exhibit, ‘Looking Narrowly’ (Bay #3). Come join us for this unique show.
With photographers Wayne Parsons and Ron Meisel at the opening.
Artist Statement: “I have done several sets of “People Walking” series with varying points of view. This group of images show very fragmented bits of people (and dogs), and the ground for the first time plays an important role. What is missing from the frame is as important, or more so, than what has been included. Bodies are moving in and out of the picture; where the people are going and why remains a mystery. But wherever they are headed, they move with purpose and at that fast pace for which New Yorkers are known.
These images foreshadow my later ground-oriented pictures (where I remove the human element entirely); I see these photos as a hybrid of the two bodies of work. The walking pictures are all about motion, the ground pictures are about moving slowly and paying attention. These “Looking Narrowly” images have a little of both, pulling the viewer in all sorts of directions.”
