Bill Luster: A Retrospective

About the Exhibition

“Photography,” says Luster, “is the greatest time machine invented. It shows us context, space, and those that love us and have loved us.”

In this retrospective exhibition, rhythmic patterns of form and color, disembodied shadows shifting across space and time, streams of light and saturated hues spilling through land and cityscapes, faces and places captured in dazzling color and in ethereal light, the photographs of Bill Luster both document and dematerialize the world, rendering specificity of subject with a poetic vision. The ever-blurring boundaries between photojournalism and photographic art are Luster’s rich domain: here, racing saddles resemble the repetitive forms of minimalism; the snaking lines of railroad tracks at dusk become a vision of neon lights, frozen in momentary stasis; fantastical cloud shapes, swaths of purple road, carpets of grass, an urban street shimmering gold in the glow of diffuse light illuminate a dream world.
