Shea Naer’s Scrim series translates the like-monikered theatrical trick using the digital tools of opacity and translucence. The resulting images depict subjects separated from a world that continues to move regardless of their distinct pause. Naer was recently featured in the Center’s Blue exhibition.

SHEA NAER

Posted by The Center on January 26, 2011

Portraits express a certain intimacy that is absent from figure free frames. While all images tell stories, faces trigger an empathic response – do I know you, are we alike, do I want to know you, let me understand. Photographer Shea Naer notes that photography speaks to the fluidity of time rather than the impossible freeze.

Shea writes:

A common perception is that photography freezes a moment, but this notion might be an illusion that image-making offers us. A picture which carries gravitas will transcend logical time, and seduce the viewer into another frame of reference.
