Becoming: A Group Show
Photographs by Elizabeth Fleming, Ian van Coller, Rachel Jerome Ferraro, and Dennis DeHartBecoming is a fine art, traveling exhibition focused on childhood through the lens of contemporary photography. Initially an exhibition idea spearheaded by native South African photographer Ian van Coller, Becoming examines childhood through poignant moments of family, humor, intrigue, and drama.
Ian van Coller, a Professor of Photography at Montana State University, will exhibit prints from his series and book Growing Up Montana, which focuses on childhood innocence. Citing the ability to study life through photographs as her primary drive to make pictures, New York-based photographer Rachel Jerome Ferraro will be showcasing her personal work in Family. Drawing largely from her interest in memory, longing and mystery in the everyday, New Jersey-based photographer Elizabeth Fleming will be presenting work from her project Life is a Series of Small Moments. Embracing a philosophical point of view of early childhood education and play, Washington State Fine Art faculty member Dennis DeHart will exhibit photographs from his series At Play.
Becoming is a celebratory and thoughtful exhibition that draws from the vernacular of the family. Focusing on such basic human qualities as innocence, play, inquiry, and memory, Becoming innately celebrates the temporal nature of childhood.
