A display through this weekend at Side Street Studio Arts:
Photography has always been dominated by rules, compositional or otherwise, defined by the visual artists before the medium even existed. Technical limitations, be it the method of recording light or the composition of the final output, are physical constraints particular to photography. This series of three images explores those two concepts as it stands today. Today’s cameras separate light and record their colors with the final output being a screen of similarly separated colors. These screens are composed of millions of pixels, each minute pixel represented by three small bars: one red, one green and one blue. These are lit or dimmed to create the final image that we call a photograph. Those three colors dominate the physicality of what photography is today.
