Photopourri: Recent Images from the RAM Photo Artist Network
Riverside, CA 92501
Photopourri features the work of 27 member artists.Featuring a variety of photography, from traditional film to digital work, candids and posed, simple to complex, the work represents the diverse range of styles and approaches within the Photo Artist Network (PAN) a RAM affiliate group and within photography today.
To display the variety of images, the curatorial team chose to hang the images in a chockablock "salon style" with photos flush-mounted flat and unframed. Turning the exhibit into a contemporary art installation, the placement of works are meant to forge connections between different works. Some works hang alone, while others are clustered together to display a series by a single or multiple artists. In some cases, the same work shot by different photographers allows the viewer to see the exchange and feedback between fellow artists who have met in the PAN group. Seen together, the patchwork of images shows the diverse visions of these Southern Californian photographers capturing their view of the world through a lens."
