“With large scale photographs, surface reflections are a real issue. Optium solves that issue and makes for a stunning presentation”. – John Divola
In photographer John Divola’s series As Far as I Could Get, he set the ten-second timer on his camera and would then run off into the distance, “as far as he could get.” As Catherine Wagley states in her review of the exhibit, “His back is always receding, near the center of formally appealing views of brush or desert. He’s a performer trying to escape the photographic frame while also making “good” compositions.”
