Joel Kaufmann has been making photographs since childhood, and still has some of his dad’s old film cameras…although the photographs in this exhibit were made using a much-newer Nikon.
The pictures here include travel photography and street photography. The travel photos are an attempt to capture the texture of a place, and if they are successful, something of its spirit.
He says of street photography: “My favorite street pictures are those that ‘ask a story’ – that go beyond (or through) form and color to raise questions about what happened before and after this moment, this frame plucked from time. This moment is true; it doesn’t matter whether or not the story is true. There may be many possible stories, many curving lines coming through this one point. What’s interesting is the question.”
