To start, I realize that my number of posts leaves quite a bit to be desired but things have been busy at the desk of i.u. but I'll try to better get out what's on my mind and filling my plate. As of now though another friend of mine has some work going up and if I'm not writing about my own happenings my second favorite thing to write about is others getting work out there.
Greg Jones is a fellow SPE colleague who has been on quite an adventure.
From the press release:
Greg Jones is proud to present his latest body of work in an exhibition of photographs taken during a month-long journey throughout Paris, Bosnia and Croatia.
This show serves as a follow-up to last year's "Rochester-Constructed Moments" exhibition, and the photographs are a part of a larger body of work that questions the divide between fact and fiction, the mythological and the mundane.
For those who can't make the opening there will be a closing reception on First Friday, December 3rd, which will be conducted in conjunction with the Hungerford's biannual open studio event, "Hungerford Unwrapped".
- Opening Reception-Friday, November 26th, 6pm - Closing Reception-Friday, December 3rd, 5pm -(and by appointment)
-The Hungerford 1115 East Main Street, Suite 311 Rochester, NY 14609 (3rd floor, enter through door #2)
Greg Jones is a digital-based artist and photographer whose approach to subject matter is shaped by his love of Robert Doisneau, Joel Sternfeld, and Edward Hopper - artists whose work captures the ordinary life of their immediate surroundings and beyond. Through his mastery of composition and color, and by compositing together frames of scenes photographed over long stretches of time, Jones works to craft narratives that disrupt the line between fact and fiction. His work has come to represent the new wave of contemporary street photography- a wave in which the extraordinary is illuminated within the mundane.
Greg was born in Syracuse, New York in 1986 and currently lives and works in Rochester, New York. He received his BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2010. Greg keeps himself involved in Rochester's art community by organizing and promoting exhibitions as well as doing volunteer work at the George Eastman House. He is currently interning with the artist Sterz as an art teacher at Cobblestone School in Rochester. Greg will be exhibiting his Rochester portfolio at Artisan Works early next year.
All Neat stuff there. If your around, which sadly I am not, pop over and check it out. If you have a chance give his site a click for more work/info at http://www.gejones.net/
Anyway, look for some more random things to come.
Be safe out there.
