Justin Ward's Unmanned Landscapes, April 22–May 13

Justin Ward, Photography M.F.A., Middle School Rooftop,
archival pigment print, 2014, 50 x 36 ½ in.

SCAD presents “Unmanned Landscapes,” a thesis exhibition by Justin Ward (M.F.A. photography). This exhibition is an exploration of the contemporary suburban landscape through the view of a consumer drone maneuvered by the artist. “Middle School Rooftop” is the product of hundreds of photographs digitally stitched together by Ward to form a highly detailed image depicting multiple perspectives, a working method adopted for all of the works in Unmanned Landscapes. Ward’s large-scale photographic artworks utilize an aerial vantage point to transform the landscape into abstract visual forms, while also considering paradoxical themes, such as accessibility and privacy, abstraction and documentation, beauty and banality.

Ward grew up in the suburbs of upstate New York. He earned a B.A. in digital art from SUNY Oneonta and an M.A. in art education from the Teachers College, Columbia University. For five years prior to attending SCAD, Ward taught high school studio art, photography and graphic design in Manhattan.

Reception Date: April 29 6–8 pm
Alexander Hall Gallery
668 Indian Street, Savannah, Georgia

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

PHOTOGROUP meeting on Wednesday, April 27

“We take moments. Not photos.

You’ve seen them before. That photographer at a wedding running around like a crazy person. Frazzled. Distraught. Exhausted. And most likely a good bit of sweat and despair on their face. Well, that’s not us.

We take our time. We watch carefully. We wait for it. We wait for that one special moment. Wait for it. Wait. Almost. There.”
The Happy Bloom

Join Justin Brown of the Happy Bloom this Wednesday at PHOTOGROUP. #Business, #WeddingPhotography, #Marketing, #Portraiture
8pm, Bergen RM 100.
