The relevant quotes about my series, Imaginary Wars are:
Subjects range from obsolete machinery (Joseph Holmes’s renderings have a lustrous gravity) to staged reenactments of imaginary wars (as strikingly captured by Harlan Erskine, they look at once casual and emphatic) to issues of personal and familial identity (multiple examples).
A sense of the cinematic informs many of these images — either overtly, with Bates, or associatively, as with Erskine. His combat reenactments are like war movies infiltrated into home movies and vice versa.
EXPOSURE: The 15th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition will be at the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University, 832 Commonwealth Ave., through June 20. Please stop by if you are in the area.
