Michael Hunold

SHOOT
Through November 1, 2020

Artist Statement: 
(see images, pricing and bio below)

I think of [the photographs] as parts of a novel I’m doing.
William Eggleston

Michael Hunold’s photographs are part of his life story. He is employed in the entertainment industry, lighting movies for a living. SHOOT is an ongoing diary of his time in the “factory of dreams”, where ordinary spaces and fabricated simulations of reality are transformed by the alchemy of camera and light into something mysterious and delightful.

Hunold’s preferred camera is a digital ‘point & shoot for its portability and unobtrusive size. It travels easily; it’s with him wherever he goes. This allows for a spontaneous response, in the moment, and for more discrete scrutiny of small details. There is a natural flow of visual energy and creative engagement with the world. For the artist, recording his images is “an enjoyable habit of mind and process of discovery.” The result is images that can be appreciated individually on their own aesthetic terms or as narrative elements in the photo-story he is writing. 

Some of the images in this portfolio are from the photo book, SHOOT, which was judged Best-in-Show in Davis Orton Gallery’s Photobook 2014. This exhibit also travelled to the Griffin Museum Of Photography.
