RECEPTION: Friday, June 7, 2019 @ 6 PM – 9 PM

Turning the camera on its own logic, the photographs in Average Subject / Medium Distance (2018) reconfigure paper guides once used to determine exposure and other image settings. Stripped of example imagery, technical numbers, and explanatory text, these relics from mid-century photographic practice are reduced to their underlying structure. In the process of removing this information, digital traces are created, shifting the surface into a rupture between physical and virtual, analog and digital, functional and useless.
