At this year’s Capture Photography Festival, Arts Umbrella and Remington Gallery come together again for a group exhibition that involves both mentor and student. Shared Approach examines how format and space affect the intentions of the photographer. Using combined experiences, the artists and students constructed an experiential environment exploring the relationships between individuals, materials, and processes. The resulting exhibition asks the viewer to reflect, listen, and sit with the perspectives of our youth in finding their own voices.

Inspired by commercial photography, surveillance technologies, and experimental sound performance, Alex Waber’s Failpoint project examines the camera’s ability to see. Through strategic underexposure, the artist “fails” at taking a photograph and instead recovers the image in post-production. The resulting picture is made of digital noise, in which new patterns and textures emerge. Some “fail points” are unrecognizable, others take on an almost vintage aesthetic, and both ultimately reduce the world to a unique mood and texture.
