This snapshot of “Lake Ocoee, October 22″ was taken at The River Gallery where it was on exhibit in a Father/Son show featuring my dad’s paintings and my photography. The show ran through the month of January, the opening reception was January 5th; it measures 23.5″ x 23.5” framed. I have not heard if it sold or not.
The question I get most about this image or the assumption people make I should say, is “Did you add the tress”? The answer is no. They grow on submerged land. Another example of my continuous fascination with the interaction of perception and reality. I think it is a telling observation that a vast number of people no longer assume a photograph to be “true”; but assume it is not. It wasn’t that long ago that a photograph of a crime would be considered proof enough to convict. I wonder what this change conveys about society’s level of trust and preconceived assumptions in a general way.
