Abstract (English)

"Before Photography is Chuck Samuels’ visual exploration of an era before he began the practice of photography. Focusing on Samuels’ father’s obsession with photography and how it might have led to Samuels’ own choice of profession, the exhibit is an examination of the successes and failures of memory. As Samuels explores his relationship with his father, he often makes himself the subject of his work, inserting himself into images of cinema and television of his father’s era and searching for the qualities that drew his father to the medium.

Before Photography includes four bodies of work that cross between the periods of his relationships with his father and photography. Though images and video in each section, a complicated and unstable narrative emerges." -- Publisher's website.
