Exhibition: View Finder
December 7, 2018 - December 14, 2018
The name View Finder is derived from the tool used on a camera for framing the composition of an image. As photographers, there’s no one right way to take a photo and what to take it with; however, the one consistency is our viewfinders. Regardless of whether it’s a full frame digital SLR, a medium-format film camera, or simply an iPhone, this is how we all see our independent worlds and how we choose to capture them.
View Finder features work by the junior class in the Photography BFA program at FIT. As part of the Photographic Concepts and Exhibition course, this show is an opportunity to exhibit the work created this semester without boundaries on presentation. It highlights the topics the class has covered, such as tableau, intimate narrative, and deadpan. In addition to this, students have also considered different ways in which to manifest our creations for the public from large-scale printing to handheld installation. As artists, they were challenged with producing content that not only fulfills the requirements for the curriculum, but also articulates our each student’s style and expression.
For this exhibition, two outside creators were also invited to participate: course professor Elizabeth Bick and notable photographer John Cyr.
Professor Bick’s work is relevant to the show because of her tableau aesthetic. Her pieces are in collaboration with an artist that makes work out of old hotel bed sheets. She’s capturing the movement of the sheets and artist in a stop motion format.
Cyr’s Developer Trays catalog famous photographer’s trays using pristine deadpan technique to properly showcase the one consistency among darkroom creators: their developer trays. Both artists demonstrate the range of genres we’ve applied this semester and complement the work of ours we’ve chosen to present to you. We welcome you to look through our viewfinder and experience our interpretation of these concepts.
