We are excited to announce a solo show by Olivia Johnston opening at the Alliance Française of Ottawa on May 2nd. The show is called Latitude and will be an exploration of landscape and travel photography. In her artist statement Olivia writes.
Often, I am unable to fully process and understand my emotions at the time I am experiencing them. My camera often seems to understand me better than I understand myself – it effectively represents how I feel in that moment faster than I can process it, and therefore is more successful at representing my state of mind than I am. These landscapes are an effective means of representing the broad scope of human emotion. Each image says much more about my experiences and interpretation of the world than words ever could.
Her vernissage for Latitude is Wednesday, May 2, between 6 - 8 pm, and the show will be open until May 30th! Hope you can make it out.
A little plug from the SPAO blog about my show, coming up fast! Hope you can make it out to the opening, this Wednesday!
