The Camera Club of New York presents Celestial, an exhibition arranged by guest curator Mark Alice Durant. Five photographic artists extend their views of our universe and the supernatural. The endless splendor of earth and space is researched and resolved through different sentiments and media: black and white photography, collage, charcoal drawings on negatives, film and performance.
The artists embrace imagination to represent the simplest and the most dramatic of celestial events. Intermediary substances are used, sprinkled across photographic paper, mimicking stars and constellations. Photograms and pinhole cameras are also utilized, representative of the capable nature of the photographic process, even through the most rudimentary of means.
