In “Memory of Never” Portland, Oregon photographer Ray Bidegain explores the genre of the diptych through the pairing of photographs, one from his catalog, and one newer work that he feels interacts with the old work in an interesting way. These two handmade platinum prints are presented side by side, and in this way Bidegain is creating conversations previously unspoken. He is interested in the way in which these conversations will be heard differently by each viewer, and how that may vary from what he was thinking about when pairing the photos. The relationship between these pictures will be fleeting – a brief interaction for the purpose of this exhibit – and then they will go back to being presented and sold individually.
Part of this exhibition also includes a few paired photos from Bidegain’s new series, “As We Get Older.” In this series he is exploring the challenge and beauty that accompanies aging. He captures physical changes and enduring spirit, as well as the ways in which society’s gaze turns away from older people. These are the first images presented from this developing body of work.
