|OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY|
The Space in Between
Daniel Feldman, Stefanie Klavens, and Lynn Saville
November 15, 2012 - January 19, 2013
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 15, 2012, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
Stefanie Klavens, Diamond Crest, C-print, 2011.
The Space in Between features artwork that focuses on societal built environments in urban settings. The images capture supposedly empty or vacant scenes in public spaces where humans are present without being pictured. The very absence of human subjects forces the viewer to contemplate the space in between these human-made structures. While firmly rooted in the 21st century, these photographs also portray a timeless feel, as if the artists froze the frame at the initial moment of abandonment, preserving a particular constructed expression of culture for generations to come.

Paul McEvoy: Friends and Strangers
Walden Pond, 2012.
For both Paul McEvoy and his subjects, the large format camera and the one or two exposures he makes carry a weight that makes both understand that there is a certain gravity to the situation--different than what would happen with a smaller digital format camera.
