The CircaNowGallery Presents
Reception September 3, 5-8pm During the Amherst Art Walk
Now through October 31st,2015
Negatives donated to Circa Now Gallery came into the permanent collection in 2013. These historical images, comprised of 47 glass negatives, c. 1920, capture the civilian population, urban and rural landscapes of a post World War 1 Crimea. The photographs document the mood and life of a Crimea torn by war and regional conflict. The original glass negatives remind us of the remarkable work photographers and their cameras brought out from behind the front lines despite the challenges they faced, and their commitment to capturing such a remote corner of our world with an eye towards documentation and an aesthetic vernacular. They remind us of the power of the photographic image today, albeit in a society where now everyone carries a camera and can be classified a photographer by default

"I believe that (abstract) art not only registers contemporary problems, but projects a desirable future order, unhampered by any secondary meaning...(abstract) art, I thought, creates new types of special relationships, new inventions or forms, new visual laws---basic and simple---as the visual counterpoint to a more purposeful, cooperative human society." ...........Moholy-Nagy 1922
