I have taken a quick look preview, at the nearly one hundred Vernacular images each one framed and designated to be appearing for the random new eye. They row geometrically in regimented order allowing any pair of eyes to visually float towards sensational thought and visual pleasure. The straight line of pictures makes one go in and out of moments of picture time documentation.
Many ideas come to mind when landing on an island of picture.
For me, I will list some of the appreciation I stuck into my mind’s pocket.
Just as everything has a personal definition this list should be defined similarly, to taste.
1. I want this one.
2. When was this made?
3. I understand.
4. Amazing that it still exists.
5. Reality was, and is infinite.
7. Close to home.
26. Show and Tell
38. Here and Now and Then
49. Day and Night
56. Emphasis for the purposes of illustration (E.F.T.P.O.I)
88. Old age
95. Still life
The above list is my list. Not in any particular order. Not complete. Just a stream of consciousness. Attributable to some of the meaning of the reception of imagery.
The exhibition will be a treat for the hungry eye. The great news is that it is free. As free as acceptance. The found photo made by someone’s camera in the past, presents the present. The gift of definition will be made individually. The beauty is of making a new meaning, to something that had once another meaning entirely.
My favorite picture in the show was the night shot of the theater’s marquee, and its letters of
information , reminding me of Jazz music of the night .
A new visual archive is exposed to public.
I say go see this show!
