Slow Exposures Prototype

May 29, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I am simultaneously pleased, honored, and humbled to have been chosen to present a satellite pop-up show as part of the13th Annual Slow Exposures photofest in Zebulon, GA this September. Details as to the exact location for my show and such will be provided as I get them, but I'd like to at least start off by teasing you with a prototype of the art I intend to present.

The overall Slow Exposures show is about photography in the rural South. My theme centers around the renewal of the past. We have become very much a throw a away society obsessed with a perverse sense of perfection.

I take a more Eastern view that all things have their beauty but not everyone sees it. I've taken still life studies of forgotten and discarded objects found in junk yards, yard sales, thrift stores, and sometimes in the trash. I've taken these objects and put them in a new light to show that all things have worth and perfection is over rated. Because one man's trash is another man's treasure.

To further this idea, rather than traditional framing, I've taken 100+ year old barn wood from one of the oldest barns in Forsyth County NC (thanks for the rescue work Dave) and flush mounted the prints on this wood.

Here is the working prototype of how these images will be presented. I'll add updates and more detail information as we get closer to the fall.
