By using light as a tool in the rendering of ideas and expressions a form of visual communication was created which transverses the boundaries of our assumptions, and allows our imagination to be influenced and manipulated by “real” things, even if when what we see and what we understand it to be are very far apart. The medium has enabled our collective ability to interpret our seen world by removing the separation of the artists apparent hand in the creation of the work seen.
GJS presents a group of photographs that each enforces the fundamental shift in the arts through the medium. Each work represents a different challenge to the viewer and stands as an example of how a photograph can transcend the bounds of the medium to speak in the universal language of arts. With works by Elfriede Stegemeyer, Paul McCarthy, August Sander, Chargesheimer and André Kertész.
