Timber | Sarah Hood Salomon

Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present Questioning the Photograph, a solo exhibition of sculptural photography by Sarah Hood Salomon. The exhibition is on view at Multiple Exposures Gallery, May 21- June 30, 2024. The gallery is open from 11am-5pm daily.

The photographic sculptures in “Questioning the Photograph” began as trees on properties that are about to be developed — the trees will soon be destroyed. In response to their imminent destruction, Salomon purposefully scratched, cut and puréed her images. The photographic remnants were then covered with resin to form sculptural objects. The original images are unrecognizable and can’t be reconstructed, just as landscapes altered by humans can’t be reassembled.

Salomon’s photographs and sculptures are a celebration of woodlands, but she also feels great sadness about the changes humans bring to our planet. She hopes this work will help others become more aware of the beauty and fragility of the forest and its inhabitants.
