C’est la vie

2013, Photograph, 22"w x 33"h

I began this project as a response to Richard Avedon’s exhibition “Women in Motion.” I fell in love with the idea of capturing the body in motion and creating an image that exudes such energy and life. The naked eye sees and processes the human experience far differently than the way it is captured on a camera’s sensor.

In the American world of the 21st century, people go to the utmost degree to avoid moving; we have grown into quite a lazy and apathetic society. I see humans that are moving, dancing, jumping, running, laughing, etc., as glimpses into the lives of those who are truly living—something too beautiful for words.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
