Tripod Camera, Sekonic Glass Sculpture With Antique Tripod

$5,000

About

ARTIST‘S STATEMENT Joshua Hershman The optical qualities of glass have always been what attracted me to the material. Its color, versatility, and transparency make it one of the most beautiful and exciting materials to create art with, yet it’s the very special way in which glass captures light that most inspires me. In my recent work, I use original cameras themselves as frames for my experimental photographic process. I attempt to emphasize the beauty and importance of photography by permanently freezing images within the glass. These works explore new ways of looking at photography, and allow the natural qualities of the material to bring a deeper understanding of the optical physics that are silently at work when capturing images with a lens. By taking photographs and layering them inside the sculptures, I can invite the viewer to return to the original magic and experimental spirit of discovery that photography is rooted in. As these ideas and images flow within the form, the natural play of light and optics inherently found in glass, imitate the actual process of taking pictures and illuminate the form from within.
