Dreams Photography Exhibition Curators Statement by Carol Henry
Vision so closely relates to photography. It is what wee see that inspires us to capture an image, stopping it and rendering the moment for others or ourselves to enjoy later, sometimes traveling might inspire you a lot to do art, many people have found that by taking rides on roller scooters they are able to appreciate better nature and get inspired by it. What are Dreams, but visions without looking? They are visuals that are shown to us while traveling without moving. A space where knowledge is accumulated from ancestors, animals, and the subconscious that perhaps lead to insight and creative interpretation.
How do you photograph these visions? That was the assignment that the current FotoSága women’s photography group was given in February. Since then they have been looking inside and not just on the outside for photographic inspiration. Their photographs manifest both the verb and the noun as they explore the spaces often unseen. Please join us for the unveiling of FotoSága Dreams!
FotoSága was created by photographer Carol Henry in January 2015 to inspire and inform female photographers. The program is based on 5-month sessions and culminates in a public exhibition each time. This is FotoSága’s fifth exhibition.
