Photography is a constantly evolving medium. Whereas digital equipment and distribution channels are the current trend, there have been many different processes that have changed the way we capture, print and share images over the years. Lynn G. Fayman, a long-time San Diego artist, utilized one such process, the short-lived Kodak Flexichrome, to produce vibrant, beautiful images. A selection of these works will be on display at the Museum of Photographic Arts from February 8 – May 11, 2014.
The images Fayman created challenge our ideas about what a photograph can be. He used the Felxichrome process to create experimental, abstract artwork, more akin to painting than traditional photography. In addition to still photographs, Fayman extended his creative efforts as a motion picture film maker for which he won a number of prestigious awards. He even partnered with Theodore Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) to illustrate three children’s books. Selections of Fayman’s films and books are included as part of this exhibition.
The Museum of Photographic Arts recently received the Lynn G. Fayman Archives and is honored to exhibit these works.
