Jason Fulford

Clayton's Ascent

Amerikāņu fotogrāfa un izdevēja Džeisona Fulforda pirmajā izstādē Rīgā būs apskatāms darbs “Kleitona lidojums”, kura nosaukums aizgūts no deviņu stundu lidojuma ar gaisa balonu 1835. gadā. Darba pamatā ir attēli, kas uzņemti laikā no 1997. līdz 2003. gadam, kad Fulfords ar motociklu apceļoja ASV. Fotogrāfijas vieno piesātinātas krāsas, izpludināta robeža starp reālo un mākslīgo, tumša, nedaudz baisa nojausma.

American photographer and publisher Jason Fulford's first exhibition in Riga will feature his work "Clayton's Ascent", it's title derived from a nine-hour balloon flight in 1835. Shot between 1997 and 2003 while traveling the US by motorcycle, Fulford’s saturated colors are infused with a veiled foreboding, drawing a blurred line between the real and artificial.
