"Eye of the Storm" offers a view of work by photographers from Japan and Norway dealing with identity, resiliency and the landscape. This is most relevant in the wake of national catastrophes of unsurmountable precedence in two small sea-faring nations who share similarities in their historic industrial and architectural vernaculars. These tragic events also find a most relevant conversation in Colorado as the location last summer of both forest fires of unprecedented distance and range and the Aurora theater shootings.
Each photographer, has found a method to deliver a poetic framing of context and the connection to a bodily point of reference. Their images bring us into place and in turn, help us to see just how similar, despite our vast geographical distances, we are to one another in endeavoring to understand the 21st Century world we have inherited.
It is in the calm of the eye, and in the framing of the photograph, that we begin to make sense of where we are, and with this, a hope for a place to arrive once the storm subsides.
