The Photography of Lorran Meares
September 22 2018 - October 28 2018
Night magnifies the differences between material culture and the subtle, deeper, hidden world of spirit. The late Cheyenne spiritual leader Bill Tallbull explained: “When five o’clock comes along, he [the archaeologist] hangs up his boots. This is the time of day when the spiritual part of the valley comes alive, in the evening and in the darkness. A lot of spirits don’t come out until the sun sets.”
That’s when I make photographs.
No Photoshop manipulation is involved in the creation of these images. All of the “work” takes place in front of the camera by incorporating special light-painting techniques that present the subject to whatever recording medium is utilized. While most of the images in this website were created on film, digital technology merely substitutes a sensor in place of the traditional light-sensitive emulsion.
