Since ancient times Man has been mesmerized by the sky. It has inspired us. We’ve written poems and sung about it, and danced by it. Before understanding, we prayed to it and
feared it. Life and tragedy spring from it. We measure our goals against it (sky high) and solve problems because of it (blue skying). The possibilities in life are endless because of it (the sky’s the limit). We have written in it, and rocketed through it, and fallen from it. And alas we have tainted it. The sky can be seen from above and below and it is immense beyond our understanding. We can tell time and find our way by it. It has been described as changing, mocking, moody, vanilla and tangerine. The sky though is
not what it seems to be.
The artists of SKY responded with a wide artistic interpretation of the topic giving way to abstract, representational or conceptual interpretations of “Sky” in all forms of light based media.
Thank you to the artists of SKY. The Griffin Museum of Photography is very proud to be able to share the work of these 41 photographers through this exhibition. What ever happens in life for you, do not ever give up looking upwards.
