"Neorealism" - New Visions from Old Snapshots"
Little Tree Gallery
Featuring work by: Rob Nixon

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 2, to Sun, Oct 31 2010

This exhibit of deconstructed, fragmented, and manipulated found photographs grew as much from Rob Nixon’s work as a writer as from an interest in visual arts. In his plays, Nixon frequently deals with the idea of narrative, how we structure random events into stories through which we seek to impart meaning and order to our lives and the world around us. The snapshot photographer similarly acts as a creator of narrative, choosing what subjects and moments of real life to capture and present a form that can be told/read/seen over and over, not only representing but often superceding the reality on which it's based. Playing off the image's susceptibility to manipulation and falsification, just like the elements in storytelling, these pieces explore how, even in the most casual, mundane snapshot, the choice of framing and the composition within it always implies what has been left out, not seen, not told, not intentionally represented, including what lies outside the frame as well as what has been relegated to the background, the shadows, and the margins in order to privilege the subject—the story—the photographer most wants to capture. And in doing this, new visions emerge from the “facts” of reality.

Photographs by Ilia Varcev
Jim Cherry Learning Resource Center Gallery, 4th Floor
Featuring work by: Ilia Varcev

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 4, to Fri, Dec 3 2010

‘I’m not an artist, I just take pictures.’ says Bulgarian born Ilia Varcev. ‘I stumble on something and take a picture of it,’ he says, adding that ‘if you want to take pictures you carry a camera and plenty of film.’ A mechanical engineer, Ilia learned photography from helping his older brother work in his home darkroom when the family lived in Czechoslovakia. Escaping the Cold War he made his way to the U.S. in 1966, arriving in Atlanta in 1977 when his car broke down en route to Washington DC. He has been here ever since, carrying that camera.
