Event Description
Bill Jacobson has made photographs for more than 40 years. Though his approach to making images has varied considerably throughout his career, the work is united by an underlying concern with memory, perception, and the dialogue between absence and presence. Jacobson’s current body of work, Place (Series), is the result of inserting rectangles of various sizes and surfaces in both studio-based and natural settings. The work questions the notion of what constitutes an image, as well as what is ‘real’ and what is ‘abstract’. These constructed photographs suggest that the creation of place, and the act of placing, come from personal choice and desire. View Jacobson's photographs at billjacobsonstudio.com.
