Multiple Exposures Gallery presents two new exhibits: UNSEEN/EXPIRED by Soomin Ham and Cub Run Pond by Eric McCollum. These exhibits may be viewed from May 10 through June 19, 2016. A reception for the artists will be held on Sunday, May 22, 2016, 2-4pm.
Soomin Ham's new work, UNSEEN/EXPIRED, presents photographs as ephemera… bringing to life images of Ham’s old film slides never seen before. Ham uses an experimental process in a traditional darkroom with expired photographic paper, outdated developer, and no fixer to create photographs with a short life – images offering only a fleeting a glimpse of places and time long forgotten.
Eric McCollum's show explores familiarity, simplicity, and the commitment to place in a series of photographs made over the course of a year at a small, suburban pond. Working in black and white, McCollum brings a sense of intimacy to a small, and easily dismissed, landscape.
