In April, Digging Pitt Too will be presenting a photography showcase. John Eastman, who is the curator, selected works by artists whose approaches to photography are entirely different. Please join us on April 14 for the artist reception.

Curator Statement -- John Eastman

One of the magic elements of photography is that the photographer has the opportunity to present to the viewer an image, captured for a split second or less, maybe never existing again in that context. It is through their eyes, and of their lens, that a type of artistic interpretation is made available to us. While images appear seemingly obvious, it is the interpretation that I always look for in a photographer's work, as this is their version of the story, or the message they are asking you to be open to see.

The process of creating a photographic montage, I believe, further extends that liberty. We have the benefit of experiencing close-up, a detailed working process that starts with a series of skillfully captured images, re-imagined, re-created, and edited by the photographer. Ultimately they present us with their vision of another version of a continuous whole.

This new composite enables us a visit inside the photographer's mind, and not just through the lens of their camera. Welcome to the interpretations of Elena Hiatt Houlihan and Kim Curinga.
