Jeff Baker will discuss his career, the intellectual and artistic basis behind his work and how it evolves over time. Q&A to follow.
Works on display in the Encore Gallery through Monday July 29.
Jeff Baker honed his craft through 35 years of editorial and advertising assignments. Throughout, he’s continually worked on his own projects, including large-format ethnographic studies in South America and Indonesia, landscapes informed by the relationship of man to his surroundings, and still-lifes of industrial-age tools that reference the personalities of their inventors. The latest work looks at urban encryption as a means of communication within a neighborhood’s core population. While embracing photography’s remarkable technological advances, he adheres to its philosophical underpinnings, giving him great confidence in his current direction.
