Ruth Hartman Camera Solo
May 1–31, 2021
A camera solo, one with no other purpose, involves a silent pact between human and machine to stop time and to encase a moment “for keeps.”
This pact is one of hubris in intent and humility in practice. Shot over years of opportunity, misadventure, and luck, Hartman’s images offer a second look at the unexpected, the unspoken, and the unquestionable, conveying chance discoveries, passing thoughts, and unexpected beauty.
