Chris Komater: Family Album

August 21 - September 5

free
A photograph depicted with intentionally low resolution: the image shows a woman wearing a strapless blue gown and long white gloves. She is standing with her arms raised in front of a staircase that descends to a beach, with the dusky sky over the ocean behind her.

Photographer Chris Komater presents a new series of large-scale, low-resolution images, “Family Album”. For sixty years, Komater’s father meticulously documented events in his family’s life with slides. Following the recent passing of both parents, Komater has chosen a few of these images and produced low-resolution enlargements: his parents kissing in the back of a car; young Chris embracing a teddy bear. Ranging in resolution from easily- to barely-recognizable, the images mirror the process of our loved ones disappearing from our lives.
