E. Brady Robinson will be featured in “Click: Space and Time”, an exhibition of selected photographs illustrating one of the core premises of photography, as part of Washington DC’s Addison/Ripley Fine Art gallery.

Whether digital or film based, all photographs represent two dimensional space at a fixed instant in time. As Albert Einstein mused, “Space, by itself, and time, by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows and, only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality.” Photography is that union, a wonderfully independent artist created world. The means, subjects, tools, technologies and styles utilized since its inception do not change the initiation this exhibit characterizes in referencing the mechanical representation of a “click”.

Although these photographs are Einstein’s “mere shadows”, they represent an artist’s ability to utilize a vast range of choices and fix them in a two dimensional format. Conceptually very different, the artists in this exhibition each close a shutter, steal a moment in time and compress it into frames. Despite their diversity, however, each photograph in the exhibition peers down an actual and conceptual rabbit hole and fixes the photographer’s vision on a surface.

An opening reception is planned for Friday, June 8th, and the exhibition will be on view through July 14th.
