About The Show: Nine by Vine
Capturing the quick and the dead was his forte during the 1960s and 1970s but today David Vine's still photography is at the other end of the spectrum. He says, “As a photojournalist sports and accidents of all kinds were the bread and butter of newspaper photography but now I collect images I like and combine them into a different kind of picture story.”
His new photo series “Nine by Vine” is a somewhat playful glimpse of tiny segments of life as we know it. He focuses on everyday things that catch his eye and combines them into unique collections of nine squares within a square. These neatly packaged collections offer the viewer a glimpse that at times are of a study of one subject showing nine different views all made at one location. Then there are collections of nine square photos focusing on a single theme made at various geographic locations.
The nine photos of nine photos in the show total 81 separate digital images. Each of the nine photos represent diverse themes ranging from weeds to signs to self portraits. They compel the viewer to study each square within the square. Vine concluded, “The range of still and video images I capture today include themes that attracted me even when I was a teenager but today I have the pleasure of digitally reproducing them in this unique display.”
According to gallery owner Tim Conway, “David's work is especially affordable and that's in keeping with my policy to sell affordable artwork. All of his photos are priced at $50 each, matted and framed.” The show will run to the end of May.
