November 5, 2015 reception 6-8 PM
Albuquerque-based photographer and educator Meggan Gould’s photographs are often fashioned from her considerations of vision and how we look at the world at large as well as how photography is used to document and speak to our surroundings. In “Viewfinders” Gould focuses on the camera apparatus itself. “Histories of looking are embedded in the [viewfinder] glass in the form of dust and scratches; etched and painted lines and text discipline and direct our sight,” says Gould. “Viewfinders are meant to be looked through,” she says. “What happens if our vision is arrested at these thresholds?” she asks. She answers, “Each camera becomes a miniature universe.”
A series of Meggan Gould’s photographs called “Viewfinders,” is featured at the Griffin Museum at Digital Silver Imaging, 9 Brighton St., Belmont, MA, on October 15, 2015 through December 31, 2015. An opening reception will take place November 5, 2015 from 6-8 p.m.
