Jeff Topham. Southern Exposure
i. I am a photographer.
ii. Something I’ve learned about myself as an artist over the last two years:
It’s easy for your art just to become work. I often have to remind myself how fortunate I am to be able to get to be creative for a living.
iii. The name and date of my current exhibit/show is:
Southern Exposure – April 1-30 @ Monica Reyes Gallery – as part of the Capture Photography Festival
Paradise Bay, Antarctica. 2018
iv. In describing the show in 3 sentences or less, I’d say:
Some nice big prints of a remote part of the world that few get to visit.
v. The inspiration for this show comes from:
Two years of a pandemic and lots of time at home to sift through archives, while dreaming of travelling again.
vi. One thing I learned in creating this show is:
Looking at images on paper is way different than looking at images on a screen.
Polar Plunge, Deception Island, Antarctica. 2016
vii. My past work includes:
A documentary on growing up as a kid in Liberia, lots of production stills for tv and film, and ten thousand photos of our 15 month-old son, Ace.
viii. After this show, I’m looking forward to:
A generous glass of whisky.
