Decisive Moment: An Exploration of Portraiture – Work on view was created collaboratively with artists from Kulture Klub Collaborative and local artist Adriana Rimpel. During the seven-week residency, the group developed a reflex of looking and recognizing important moments while photographing. Through a series of exercises that shifted from looking to questioning, photographing to modeling, questioning to answering, and directing to acting, artists considered the many tactics of portrait photography. In addition, they examined the various identities and personas they wear in their daily lives.

Decisive Moment will be on view at the Youth Opportunity Center gallery throughout the spring.

Warm wishes,
Jeff Hnilicka
