Spotlight
In this issue’s Spotlight section, we bring you the story behind one of the selected collections from Community Curation Season 06: Selected People, by Pelle Cass
'Frog Pond, Summer', by Pelle Cass
'Frog Pond, Summer', by Pelle Cass
Pelle Cass is an award-winning photographer from Boston whose work has been widely exhibited, collected, and published. And the Boston area is the place he chose to photograph this collection: Selected People.
In a quick glance, you may not realize anything out of the ordinary in some of his photos. But with a bit more attention, you perceive some details that cannot simply be a coincidence, like the one where every subject’s foot is an inch or so above the next step of a staircase.
Cass achieves that by creating a collage, of sorts. He sets his tripod in a public area, and takes hundreds of photos of the same spot. Back in his studio, he identifies patterns or subjects he likes, and organizes them in a single frame. The result is the condensation of hours in a single moment, bringing a notion of time to his work.
In his own words: “The photographs in Selected People are fabrications that are also truthful documents. These composite photographs are scrupulously additive: I’ve changed nothing in the original scene, only selected what to keep in and what to leave out. My work shows a particular place over time and reveals a surprising world–sometimes orderly, sometimes chaotic–that is visible only with a camera.”
RAW DAO is happy to announce that Frog Pond, Summer is now part of our ever-growing collection.
