FDR Brewery presents photography by Jim Burnett and Aaron Wilder.
What makes a place, time, or experience memorable? In an era of constant and endless distraction and stimulation, how do we choose the moments to capture and contemplate in our minds? For two photographers in this exhibition, each explore the notion of being present in two separate ways.
Jim Burnett documents the formal aesthetics of where he is, capturing light, color, time and texture in everyday life. His photos are spontaneous snapshots of the mundane beauty in the places where he happens to be.
In his Where is Home? series, Aaron Wilder photographs emotionally significant places from his past but in a present day context. Challenging the use of photography as a means for recollection, his vivid memories and feelings of these revisited places come in conflict with how these places he photographs now feel distant and unrecognizable.
