Davis Orton Gallery presents photography exhibitions by John Chervinsky and John Cyr from October 12 to November 11 with a reception on Saturday, October 20, 6-8pm.
In “Studio Physics,” John Chervinsky’s images subvert the very nature of a photograph by managing to depict not a single instant, but the passage of time. Intrigued by the pioneering time and motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge, Harold “Doc” Edgerton and the experimental work of Berenice Abbott that investigated motion in seconds and nanoseconds, Chervinsky asks, “What would happened if we picked an image capture interval of not seconds, but weeks?”
John Cyr is photographing available developer trays so that the photography community will remember specific, tangible printing tools that have been a seminal part of the photographic experience for the past hundred years.
