Visions4 – Narrative in Photography
Exhibiting their work together for the first time, four established fine-art photographers present unique interpretations of their art. Each showing a thematic series, the four artists explore and examine the medium of photography, pushing the boundaries of process, composition, and content. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, this exhibition is also a simple delight to the eye.
Each Artist's description:
Will Gibson: Mediterranean Sketchbook
is the latest collection of the artist’s Optical Abstractions series. This body of work is candid street photography captured intentionally out of focus and given texture in Photoshop. The resulting images lack detail, yet emphasize gesture, color, and composition in revealing a magical world unavailable to the unaided eye.
Jodie Hulden: Photo Quatrains.
This series began amid the current pandemic with the artist’s daily walks down backstreets and alleys of San Diego. Alleys are a forgotten microcosm of those elements and activities that lie hidden within the everyday. They are also places of discovery and offer continual surprises. These small pieces are arranged in four “verses”, meant as visual odes to the ephemeral beauty of hidden passages and to the constancy of change in our lives.
Charles Ingham: Los Angeles Blue Notes
The artist documents the sites of former jazz clubs, the former homes of jazz musicians, and the locations of jazz-related institutions in the Greater Los Angeles area. Photo-narratives, combining images and texts, are accompanied by commentaries detailing these often-forgotten sites and their relevance to both the region’s history and continuing cultural struggles.
Kurt Lightfoot: Narratives With Isolation
Isolation can feel entrapping or freeing. Narratives With Isolation uses visual metaphors and symbols to create in the viewer’s perception and emotions an experience that includes isolation. But isolation is not the whole story — hence narratives with isolation, not narratives about isolation.
