Common Places by Willson Cummer

Mar 22, 2019 - May 12, 2019

This exhibit features photographs from Willson Cummer's project, "Common Places"

Willson Cummer comments on the exhibit:  "These photographs are from my project called Common Places. I use a few plays on words to develop my concept. First, I made these images in public parks — places held in common, set aside from development. Also, these pictures are of unremarkable, or common places. While I love to climb and paddle in the Adirondacks this work is about small and simple parks near my home. Finally, I am interested in the use — primarily in the 1700s — of the commonplace, a scrapbook of sorts in which people collected stimulating quotes, letters and other written or printed items. These pictures are my commonplace."
