Depth of Field
Additional Publication Information
The photo essay was a collaboration with a small workshop of artists led by Jacky Redgate to produce an essay of images on Narelle Jubelin's current work Vision in Motion. Narelle's work responds to the often overlooked modernist architecture within the grounds of University of Sydney. The Depth of Field photo essay utilises purpose built pinhole cameras to capture the reflections and movement between Narelle's work and the architecture it inhabits. ISBN: 9781742102573
Narelle Jubelin invited fellow artist Jacky Redgate to produce a photographic essay to accompany Vision in Motion. The challenge was to respond to Jubelin's work by making a form of site-specific documentation. Redgate conceived of a pinhole photography workshop which ran over two weeks at the University Art Workshop, School of Architecture, Design and Planning.l The three participating artists worked closely with Redgate using found materials and objects, each constructed several cameras that enabled a variety of wide angle, telephoto, panoramic, anamorphic, rolling and multiple pinhole views. The pinhole camera process returns photography to its origins, and the model of a workshop returns to modernist practices, specifically those established at the Bauhaus.
This essay continues Redgate's occasional involvement in 'documenting' the work of Jubelin.2 For Vision in Motion the collaboration has been extended beyond the hand and eye of the individual artist to incorporate a cross-generational exchange of fugitive but fixed stares.
