Join Camerawork Gallery in Portland, Oregon Saturday, May 4th through Friday, May 31st, 2019 for an exhibition of award-winning photographer Pelle Cass’ series Crowded Fields. His series of composite photographs mash hours of action into a single photograph. Cass says, “I put my camera on a tripod and take a thousand or so pictures. Then I compile selected figures. I change nothing—I just decide what stays or goes.” Depicting sports that range from high diving to polo, the images convey a wild uproar of action that exudes the eeriness of time. Selected work from this series will be presented on Platinum prints for viewing.
