Circles Curator Tour: Infinite Light: A Photographic Meditation on Tibet
Feb 8, 2018, 4pm
Circles of Support members are invited to join Janet Baker, curator of Asian art, for an exclusive Circles curator-led tour of Infinite Light: A Photographic Meditation on Tibet.
Infinite Light: A Photographic Meditation on Tibet explores photojournalist Marissa Roth’s inner and outer journeys to this majestic land and her literal and impressionistic views of Tibetan Buddhist practice and devotion. Venturing to Tibet in 2007 and 2010, Roth chose to photograph with Kodachrome film on both trips. This film, which is no longer produced, was known as the ‘black & white’ of color film, as its characteristic dramatic highlights and shadows punctuated the lush tones of red and other saturated warm hues, while subtly capturing earth tones. And, it rendered the truest photographic black. Roth states, “It is this contradiction and duality that I continually search for and respond to visually, as I believe that they are the seen metaphors for all that exists”.
