Doug Prince’s Photo Sculptures are featured at AIPAD 2014

CEG is featuring works from Doug Prince’s renowned Photo-Sculpture series at Aipad.  The series consists of images printed on film which are sandwiched between Plexiglas, creating a photographic fantasy. As light passes through the “boxes,” objects appear sharper, creating a drama, which taps into our memories and dreams.

The layered images range in content from realistic environments to illogical spaces, presenting a surreal juxtaposition of elements and challenging the viewer’s notion of truth and reality. From its inception, photography has explored the relationship between fact and fiction.

Oscar Rejlander and H. P. Robinson, both pioneers of early photography, combined negatives and staged events to discuss prevalent social issues. Their images force viewers to grapple with the concept that the camera has the ability to create fictions.   Doug Prince continues in this tradition, blurring the lines between fact and fiction, and reminding us that photographs are taken and made.
