Landscape photography exhibition opening March 10 at UA's Emily Davis Gallery
"Contemporary Views," a free exhibition of landscape photography by Jeff Rich, Daniel Shea and Lynn Whitney, runs March 10 through April 11 in the Emily Davis Gallery at The University of Akron. A free reception will be held March 20 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Curated by photographer Melissa K. Stallard, UA assistant professor of art, "Contemporary Views" examines how the landscape reflects the needs and interests of those who inhabit it.
"The artists in this exhibition photograph their surroundings with large-format film and view cameras, a deliberate and painstaking process that permits the recording of detail with clarity," explains Stallard. "While these photographers work in a seemingly impersonal, documentary style, their choice of vantage point, use of scale, and deliberate juxtapositions suggest complex, subjective, and ambiguous interpretations of their subjects that go beyond mere factual description."
