Traces Opening Reception

Several years ago, whilst living in New York, Ame Curtiss wrote an essay titled The Things I Didn't Photograph. Much of the essay is a reminiscence of her earlier life in San Diego, a darkly funny lamentation for a fractured life, but hopeful around the edges. This is an exhibition of things that Ame Curtiss did photograph. But in many ways it is the pictures she left untaken that give these images their power: a presence that can’t be seen or photographed. Artist Peter Halasz, a long time friend and comrade of Curtiss, curates the exhibition with this in mind. Several years ago, whilst living in New York, Ame Curtiss wrote an essay titled The Things I Didn't Photograph.
