Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second. – Marc Riboud
Don Krause, curator and owner of ArtBar, has issued this challenge for the 2019 CoPA+Art*Bar summer exhibition: show us your best shot from now (in the past 2 years) and then (your whole portfolio).
What we see now is informed by our comprehensive perspective and experience. Our photography is our voice, our message to the masses. This year we seek to impart our message with the benefit of hindsight; expressing our voice of today in tandem with that of our past. What is the echo of our landscapes, the evolution of nature, the perception of “abstract” over time? We challenge you to connect with your early expressions and lay them side by side with your modern transformation – give us your best shot!
