Regional Portraiture Today

This portrait was selected for the Springfield D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts’ “This is Us: Regional Portraiture Today,” running October 2020 to April 2021.



I zoom.  You zoom.  We all zoom.  We have adjusted to seeing each other through a tiny rectangular portion of a computer screen, unfiltered, in our everyday surroundings, displaying the inside of our homes to the outside.  A yellow rectangle puts the spotlight on one of us, maybe because we are speaking, or because the dog barked, or possibly because the bell rang.  This self-portrait, performed over a few minutes of a zoom session includes three different sides of the photographer, and a conspicuous camera, here to capture the action in this multi-facetted self-portrait in black, white and yellow.
