LightBox Photographic Gallery will host the artists’ opening reception for ODD on Saturday, October 13th from 5-8 pm. The exhibit shares photographic images that deviate from the normal—either in subject or in method—that are mismatched, individualistic, outside the box, and peculiar. Photographs that simultaneously challenge and excite. Images that dare viewers to think and see in unexpected ways. The Exhibit was juried by Russell Joslin.

Russell Joslin is a celebrated editor and publisher. For 17 years (2000-2017), he was the Owner, Editor & Publisher of the internationally acclaimed photography journal SHOTS. In 2018, he founded a new photography and art book publishing company, Skeleton Key Press. He lives and works in Oslo, Norway.

“I’m pleased to present the exhibition Odd—a peculiar selection of images that fascinate with their expressions of off-center ideas and psychological concepts while capturing both staged and unexpected moments. A compelling variety of photographic techniques and processes were utilized to create these images (including wet-plate, pinhole, gelatin silver, cyanotype, Polaroid, double-exposure, mixed-media, film, and digital) and to assist in expressing each artist’s ideas that challenge convention and endeavor to enlighten the shadowy corners of their viewers’ psyches.” ~ Russell Joslin
