> DESCRIPTION


In Camera Abstractions removes the, now ubiquitous, digital component from these works, and restores photography’s original sense of surprise.  

Works in the show, which opened in February, vary from the camera obscura light manipulations of Ethan Jackson and simple color pinhole images of David Sharpe to the double-exposed collaborations of John Davenport and Lincoln Phillips, and Sabin Aell's complex and airy installation utilizing multiple exposures made on slide film. Her photography uses multiple exposures on slide film, Sabin Aell juxtaposes industrial refineries with delicate specimens from the Museum of Nature & Science.  She is able to obtain the vibrant colors by developing positive film with traditional negative film techniques. 

John Davenport & Lincoln Phillips also work with multiple exposure photography, although the artist’s hand changes.  Davenport initially takes an entire roll of film and then passes it onto Phillips without mentioning his content or subjects.  Phillips then rewinds the film and takes a second set of photographs on the same roll.  Only after the film has been processed, can the two artists fully experience their compositions.
