Detroit Image Works presents
JIM GOLDEN – COLLECTIONS
December 4 – January 31, 2018
Detroit Image Works is excited to announce the exhibition, COLLECTIONS, by photographer Jim Golden. Based in Portland, Oregon Golden is an award winning, published, artist and photographer specializing in still life and products. Jim brings an artist’s eye and an enthusiast’s passion to his work. He strives to capture the pared-down essence of his subjects, rather than impose a false sense of beauty upon them. The viewer is invited to enjoy an often-inanimate object for its stark simplicity and quiet quality.
Golden seeks out individuals who are collectors who will allow him to photograph their collections. Each image is shot in camera with the camera hi above the ground looking down. The collections are then meticulously laid out on a backdrop and once perfectly placed are photographed.
