Month Of Photography: What Has Never Been…Is
How do you photograph the impossible? For starters, you don’t stop with the image captured by the camera. “I personally am not a big fan of classic photography,” explains Sabin Aell, co-owner of Hinterland. “I think other galleries do that more, anyway, so I want to be more diverse.”
That desire will be on display at What Has Never Been…Is, an exhibit of photographic surrealism featuring sixteen artists, ten of them from Colorado. These artists have produced a body of work that pushes the boundaries of what can be considered photography in pursuit of their idiosyncratic views of the surreal.
“Surrealism is very open, and it’s up to the artists to decide what is surrealism for them,” Aell says. “I think it’s a really wide-open field, and I always like to get work that is something different and not so generic. I also like different mediums, or mixed media, in photography-based work. It can be basically anything.”
The show opens with a reception from 6 to 11 p.m. tonight at Hinterland, 3254 Walnut Street, and continues through April in conjunction with Denver’s Month of Photography; admission is free. For more information, visit hinterlandartspace.com.
