Chris Evans, "Thank the Romans"
Photographer Chris Evans work "Thank the Romans", will be on display at Austin Public Library's Yarborough Branch as part Big Medium's West Austin's Studio Tour. This year the tour will run from April 27 - May 5, 2013. The exhibition is free and open to the public on the weekends of April 27-28 & May 4-5 from 11am - 6pm. An artist reception will be held on Saturday April 27th from 3:30pm - 5pm at the Yarborough Branch.
Chris is interested in the ethical implications of photographic portraiture.
"We are always looking at each other, it is part of who we are. However, this process of looking becomes questionable with the introduction of a camera. The implication of the interaction is inevitably changed: the moment is captured, made permanent and infinitely reproducible."
Chris Evans is expected to graduate from the St. Edward's Photocommunications department in May of 2013. After initially being interested in geography he promptly changed the trajectory of his studies to photography. Since the switch, Evans has worked extensively within photography with an emphasis on portraiture. He is specifically interested in how locations loose place authenticity caused by a commodity driven society. Evans intends to pursue an MFA in Photography and eventually teach at the university level.
