Time and Places: Where Light Resides presents an inspiring collection of photographs by local artists Dan Richard Barber, Philip Goodman, Essie P. Graham, and Sharon O’Callaghan Shero. These artists share an understanding that photography is an incredible tool that is inherently capable of communicating personal narratives with a level of fluency and expressiveness that is often difficult to accomplish by the spoken or written word. They also recognize that the camera can be used very effectively to reveal things that often go unnoticed or disregarded and that photography in general may be used to expose the beautiful complexities of the world around us.
As the title implies, the works of art in this exhibition examine ideas and notions related to the theme of time, places, and light—all integral elements of the photographic arts. Although well versed in the techniques of traditional photography, all the artists in this show repeatedly make use of alternative methods of the medium that include digital collaging, image manipulation, alteration of perspectives, and the depiction of imagery that often appears to come from the artists’ imagination rather than from reality. With a variety of creative approaches to their depiction of stories and ideas, these artists are constantly advancing their vision and their craft with innovative style, inquisitive eye, and creative imagination.
