Sarah Graves, The Unknown
Exhibition at: www.gravesstudios.com
The Unknown is a curation of images made by Portland photographer Sarah Graves. Sarah values analog methods of art making and uses film to make her photographs. Analog photography slows down the creative process and allows for reflection while making the images. This collection of images entices the viewer to ask questions, luring them to make their own interpretation of what they are seeing. The photographs invite your imagination to create its own story about each scene. Some of the images are subtly haunting, others are dreamy, quiet landscapes that provoke feelings of uncertainty or the uncanny. Drawing on themes of anxiety and uncertainty of the future, these photographs offer comfort by the commonality of unease we feel during these times.
The images will be no longer be exhibited in the gallery and no formal opening reception will be held due to COVID-19. A virtual reception will be held for the length of the show at www.gravesstudios.com.
