“Human Landscapes” Opening Reception
Saturday May 13, 2017 – 2:00-5:00 PM
Part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival
Human Landscapes presents three varied approaches of image-making, combining the presence of figures, cinematic influence, and textiles. Moore-Kakaletris utilizes portraiture paired with underlying tones of surrealism to express intimate themes, such as grief and loss. Petrungaro aspires to form a visual language in his landscape photography that renders unnecessary any explanations to plot, story, or emotions. In SFA’s narrative-based imagery, the woven image becomes a material archive for representing memory within a changing landscape.
