New Exhibit – Susan Dobson “Focus|Finder”
Photographers have often used the landscape as a genre to explore our human relationship with the natural environment. In “Focus | Finder” Dobson has taken serene photographs of Lake Huron and has overlaid the markings and focus points found in the viewfinders of digital and analog cameras. Through the photographs, Dobson focuses our attention on the act of looking, with an emphasis on the emotion of our present moment.
The photographs, for Dobson, may rise in our collective consciousness a variety of issues, from rising water levels, pollution and industry, and the plight of plastics that threaten ecosystems and aquatic life. The images thus aim to operate not just as transcription, but also a metaphor and poetic reflection of our surrounding world.
This exhibit will be displayed between February 18th until March 26th.
