John Greenman Photographs

January 25, 2014 - March 30, 2014
Philip Henry Alston Jr. Gallery

Georgia artist John Greenman (Carolyn McKenzie and Don E. Carter Professor of Journalism at the University of Georgia) utilizes digital technologies to create exquisitely detailed and unmanipulated images of landscapes. The exhibition comprises two series of photographs: black-and-white images seen from a car window along Georgia’s backroads and vivid color images from all over the world. Greenman’s interest in shape, tonal range and detail inspires both sets of photographs. Using these formal elements as the starting point, Greenman strives to be open to seeing beyond mere appearances. He thinks of the photograph as a two-layered document, one that records a fact but at the same time evokes something deeper and more contemplative.
