Longing Has No Face – Rebecca Jacobs Opening Art Reception
October 25 @ 7:00 pm
My photography resides in a sense of place; of emotion; and the rich qualities of light, color and form. This series conveys how reflections carry the possibilities of unaccountable situations and transitional environments. These inhabitations of the mind catch real persons in the shadowy, thin panes of windows and polished surfaces, simultaneously masking and revealing the essence of what is inside. The wasted yearnings of scattered thoughts permeate this immateriality—sometimes it is only by finding the unreal about ourselves that we can find the real.
