Washington’s Shadow: Images in Limbo | Featuring Lynn McIntosh | July 17 – August 31
Lynn McIntosh is a native of Bluefield, Virginia, and graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. In Washington’s Shadow, Lynn has placed each image in limbo; which is like a “spotlight” to remove the distraction of a surrounding background – and, perhaps, to encourage a quiet and thoughtful emotional response. Although limbo photography is not a new technique, Lynn’s historical application suggests a dimension beyond the obvious, by surrounding the subject as if it is floating in infinite blackness. His collection contains familiar images of patriots and cataclysmic pitfalls that tested the mettle of the heroes who served after, and long after, our first president. In addition to provoking thought, the collection portrays a chronological historical narrative as each image relates to the picture that precedes or follows it.
Experience the narrative for yourself and meet the photographer at the opening reception, July 21, 6:00-8:00 p. m. at the Center for the Arts, 9419 Battle Street, Manassas. “Washington’s Shadow”, a guided artist talk, will begin at 6:45 p. m. Receptions are free and open to the public.
