JOHN CHIARA

FRI SEP 18 2015 — SAT OCT 31 2015

Bay Area photographer John Chiara captures cityscapes in a process that is part photography part sculpture and part event - he creates one-of-a-kind photographs in a variety of hand-built cameras, the largest of which is a 50” x 80” field camera, transported by the artist on a flatbed trailer. Once a location is selected, he situates and then physically enters the camera, maneuvering in near total darkness positive color photographic paper on the camera’s back wall. John Chiara received his B.F.A. in Photography from the University of Utah in 1995, and his M.F.A. in Photography from CCA in 2004. He was recently included in the group exhibition "Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography" at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
