11:Eleven gallery is proud to present Freezing Time: A Superpower – a Fine Art Photography show exploring the art of storytelling and conveying some of life’s beautiful complexities in photographic form.

Evoking thought and emotion, a photograph can transform light and time into something physical, grabbing our attention and playing on our emotions, and time is the most valuable resource known to mankind. Here, each artist displays their superpower as we navigate through their lens as they present intriguingly unique perspectives on personal and overarching social themes, telling stories and framing the world around us.

Featuring local artists from the DC, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area, Freezing Time: A Superpower celebrates the unique talent of a small collection of Photographers who possess the innate ability to capture, manipulate and immortalise special moments in time.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

SABIYHA PRINCE

Sabiyha Prince is an anthropologist/visual artist whose paintings and digital collages have been exhibited at The Anacostia Arts Center, Hill Center, Zenith Gallery, 11Eleven Gallery and through Black Girls Who Paint and The Petworth Artist’s Collaborative. As a former educator and an activist Prince’s pushback against societal inequality is reflected in her artistic practice and her published work. She has authored two books and engaged in qualitative research in NYC and her native DC – doing work that inspires her to embrace a quest for beauty and justice in her painting and photography.  Prince’s media appearances include MSNBC, NPR, Al Jazeera English, Sirius XM, WHUR, WOL, WPFW, and WYPR.

DOUGLAS HOCHBERG

Doug Hochberg is a 32-year-old Washington, D.C. based street photographer. After buying his first camera in 2016, a 35mm Pentax ME Super, Doug walked his hometown of Cleveland and immediately was hooked. Now with five years of exploring his passion, Doug always travels with a camera (usually film), capturing moments that would have otherwise been lost. Since he began to shoot on film, Doug only edits photographs in a manner that could be achieved if existing in a darkroom.

KIRTH BOBB

Kirth Bobb is an award-winning photographer and teacher whose work illustrates the synchrony of life and spans several photography genres, including portraiture, street photography, weddings, and fine art.

Kirth’s Afro-Guyanese upbringing heavily influences his work. The diverse, bright, and vivid colors and cultural landscapes of Guyana shapes his photography.

Growing up, Kirth’s grandmother always told him, “There’s an art to everything,” and ever since, he’s worked to highlight the joys, sorrows, beauty, and humor that form the artistic tapestry of everyday life.

His photography inspires people to broaden their perspectives about places and communities they may be unfamiliar with and encourages an appreciation of the beauty in the subtle, familiar, and mundane aspects of everyday life.

Kirth is a FujiFilm X Photographer, and his photographs have been published in several major publications, including The New York Times, Washington Post, and The Huffington Post, and featured in several exhibitions across Europe, The Caribbean, and The Americas. Kirth has also collaborated with brands such as Apple, Adobe and Framebridge.
