View Finders: Four Photographic Voices illuminates the work of four contemporary photographers with local roots—Paula Chamlee, Catherine Jansen, Brian Peterson, and Michael Smith—who represent four distinct approaches to the medium. The exhibition will include Chamlee’s incisive studies of surface and place; a selection from Jansen’s project 1008, an “experiential journey into sacred storytelling” made in over 25 trips to India; Peterson’s melodic explorations of nature and light; and a range of Smith’s rarely-exhibited urban portraits from across the US. On the occasion of the Michener’s 30th Anniversary, View Finders celebrates the contributions of these artists and recognizes photography as a significant force in the legacy of the Museum.
View Finders: Four Photographic Voices is supported by the Photography Patrons Circle of the James A. Michener Art Museum.
