FLARE

Christine D'Onofrio


At its most elementary level, photography is merely a series of light rays reflecting off surfaces, finding their way through a camera lens and burning an organized image onto a lightsensitive surface. D’onofrio creates abstract photographs of the diffraction artifacts that happen within the camera lens itself. These photographs are about the camera and remind us that the photograph can reveal more than what is simply there. Intrigue lies within the mistakes, or unwanted occurrences that define the limitations as well as the limitlessness of the medium. This show is composed of a series of images shot in a lighting studio, with no particular objects in front of the camera, but with the lens flare as their subject matter.
