Roger Shackelford: The Supernatural Among Us: Opening reception on September 15, 2019, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Sundermann Gallery of St. Matthew's Cathedral (5100 Ross Avenue at North Garrett, Dallas, Texas 75206). The show runs through October 31, 2019.
Roger Shackelford’s photography explores moments that suggest the supernatural among us. These images are informed by his recovery from quadriplegia and a sense of need for the transcendent. Each image is composed of two to eight exposures on a single frame of 120 film using either an 80mm lens, handmade pinhole, or a combination of both. The overlapped images are like a meditation in that they combine timed exposures from different locations and the final image is not seen until the film is processed. Abstract photographs range in size from 10 x 10 to 20 x 40 on brushed aluminum or clear acrylic separated from the wall on backing blocks.
