Liminal (no. 2) ©Trevor Poudrier 2016


Exhibition from August 5-September 1, 2016, from 9 am-8 pm, Monday-Sunday. Join us for a closing reception on September 1 from 6-8 pm, Beetnix Superfoods and Juice Bar, 18 East Broughton Street, Savannah, GA

Liminal is a photographic series of large format double exposures merging two realities into one, addressing liminal consciousness, or the time between waking and sleeping. Each image combines a scene from Savannah (for familiarity), with a first person POV shot of my resting body under a red comforter. The result uses the nonverbal language of photography to relate the deeply personal experience of duality while projecting one's consciousness via out of body experience or astral projection.

The images are dark; so dark that the image is at times barely visible. These heavy shadows emphasize the fleeting, ephemeral nature of liminal consciousness. This allows the viewer’s mind to expand into the void, just as it does when they let their thoughts wander in a daydream or reverie. Ultimately this is the goal of Liminal: to act as a catalyst for consciousness projection. What is being addressed is the evolution of the the way the viewer observes an image, or at least another technique which can be used to observe.

Some type of active participation is required on the viewer’s behalf to achieve this technique, but as previously suggested, the effort is equal to that of daydreaming. Observe the image and relax, letting the mind go where it pleases. Then come back to the image, maintaining a sense of presence in this physical space. Each daydream is a projection, however exciting or banal it may be. Repeating this process while viewing and spending more time transitioning between the state of reverie and physical awareness, results in a more profound experience for the viewer.

Call for Entry, Georgia National Fair



The Georgia National Fair has issued a call for entry for the photography competition this fall. The deadline is September 8, 2016. Please register online at http://georgianationalfair.com/home-arts-fine-arts/. 

The dominant subject in the image should fit one of the following categories:

  • People: Portrait of a single person or a group of people. 
  • Places: Architecture and Landscapes, Street Scenes (street scenes must include name of town or city). 
  • Things: Inanimate objects, includes still life 
  • Animals and Insects: Any member of the animal kingdom that is not human 
  • In the Garden: Living plants, trees, flowers 
  • Fun!: Image should project the idea of fun – amusement, enjoyment, lighthearted pleasure. 
  • I Spy – Georgia Fairs and Festivals: Images from any fair or festival in Georgia. Name of the event should be included on the back of the image. 
  • Dominant Color – Orange: The majority of the image should consist of the dominant color. We are looking for new and different images - more than just your average pumpkin field or bowl of oranges. Details – Macro: Extreme close-ups. Macro photography produces photographs of small items larger than life size. 
  • Anything Goes!: Photographer’s choice - your best photo. This category can also include altered images (explanation of alteration must be included on the back of the photo)
A title is required for each photo. Keep in mind that photos are judged on the image and not on the title. Long titles will not be as easily read when your photo is displayed, as the type will be smaller. NOTE: "Untitled" is not an acceptable title.
