Richard Ross: Gathering Light

9 December - 21 January 2001

 

Richard Ross (b.1947) has assembled a collection of large format colour photographs over a number of years, while travelling on assignments for magazines. In capturing these remarkable locations on film, the American photographer demonstrates an expert understanding of the camera, which makes tangible the very essence of the visual.

 

Gathering Light includes carefully staged scenes of interiors with a backdrop of various faiths and cultures. Tombs, churches and temples provide an atmospheric ground for his studies, portraying the situation as if it were a stage set. The lighting found within these situations becomes the focus of the work as the luminosity emerging in these images comes from the coincidence of light and dark. MK G presents fourteen photographs selected from this touring exhibition, which was initiated by the John Hansard Gallery, Southampton.
