they encounter and to transform the things that remain unnoticed, they see the extra in the ordinary,”
writes Louise Clements in her juror’s statement for the upcoming Simply exhibition at The Center for Fine
Art Photography. She goes on to say, “The works also go further to attempt to represent the unphotographable
yet omnipresent abstract phenomena such as guilt and satellite transmissions, all become
fascinating in their isolation.” Featuring work from David Welch (Juror’s Selection), Yonging Qian
(Director’s Selection), and Ji Hyun Kwon (Juror’s & Director’s Honorable Mention), Simply allows the
viewer to look deeper within each image.
