Jerry Shevick’s new photographic series is based on slides, decades and often over a half century old.  They are images from his past, as well as many others.  They’ve been re-shot and re-imagined.  As the digital revolution rolls on, we won’t remember in the same ways.  There is no fading of the image, no lens flares, no developing errors.  Our past is as crystal clear as the day we shot it.  But, that clarity comes with a cost:  the medium itself immersed us in the stories, whether the family slide show or photo album.   Our minds were challenged with recreating the colors and context of deteriorating or poor images. Jerry’s photos often accent the degradations, making them a part of the overall aesthetic.  Mildew, dust, fading – it all creates a sense of time, mystery and beauty.  And, most of all, they create shared experiences that viewers bring their own stories to.
