Solitaire

Philip Desjardins


SOLITAIRE: Its popular definition conjures up images of lone figures playing an 18th-century card game. This solo exhibition explores translations of solitaire in 15 photographs with additive captions that suggest possibilities for other interpretations, narratives, and dimensions. SOLITAIRE now becomes a two-way game of show and tell. Desjardins extends his 40-year-long career in documentary filmmaking—where words and moving images are the essence of storytelling—into a photographic series that strives to do the same.
