11-noon: Andrea Gohl


12-1pm: Renee Rendine

 


1-2pm: Charles Benton

Describe the photograph selected for One Hour Photo in three words:
Don’t remember it

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
I chose one photo from a series of very similar photos. Maybe this defeats the purpose of the exhibition to an extent, but it reflects a tendency in my work–I often deal with the reproducibility of images in my projects, trying to diffuse the singularity or singular significance of any image, either at the point of initial production (while photographing, as with the image for this show) or the end of that process (in the printing/display/exhibition of the images/image-objects).  I am interested in the tension between my work’s goals and the exhibit’s, I am glad I could participate.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
I am not attached to it, there will always be more images. I do wish I could see it before its gone though.

2-3pm: Kate Gorman

Describe the photograph selected for One Hour Photo in three words:
gray, pause, red

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
I chose a photo with diagonals and one vivid color so the elements of the image would stay in my head long after the exhibit was over.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
I like it. It reminds me that the photo wasn’t really here to begin with.

3-4pm: Edouard Crotti

Describe the photograph selected for One Hour Photo in three words:
Lines, lights, contrast

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
Everything has to disappear. I like this concept. “Film Noir” is something unique, non-repetitive, ephemeral. “Film Noir” structure is adapted for a short life but also to stay in the collective memory.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
First, I would like to thank all the curators – Adam Good, Chajana denHarder, and Chandi Kelley. I’m proud to contribute to One Hour Photo. For me it’s important to be a part of the edifice. “Film Noir” is taken from photographic work still in progress,”Silhouette & Abandoned garage.”
