[The Experience Provider], The Challenge and the Impact (series) by Carlos Bezz
Location: Humber College North Campus - B Building Courtyard Entrance
Amidst this global pandemic, many people feel powerless. There is a combination of fear, frustration, depression, anger, and anxiety. How does one get through being isolated from everyone, including family and friends? Do we just learn to live without our loved ones and shared experiences? What are our doubts about the future?
In my photography series [The Experience Provider], The Challenge and the Impact, I looked to the past and turned my digital camera into a pinhole camera. This is an older method that usually requires a longer exposure time. Because of this process, moving subjects will be blurred, creating an almost ghost-like appearance. It felt appropriate to document my work in this way, as I believe it best captures the feelings and concerns of people living in this current climate. Constantly surrounded by masks, vaccines, and isolation (enforced and sometimes self-imposed), I was inspired by our circumstances, and wanted to depict the heaviness that comes with this new reality.
