Leica Gallery Boston Presents The Sea by Photographer EJ Camp

  
Leica Gallery Boston Presents The Sea by Photographer EJ Camp
Large Format Exhibit Explores the Calm and Wildness of the Ocean

April 6, 2017 — Leica Gallery Boston is proud to present the Boston premiere of EJ Camp’s photo exhibition, The Sea. The collection will debut on May 4, 2017 with an Artist Talk at 4pm followed by an opening reception from 6-9pm. The exhibition will be available for public viewing from May 4 – June 27, 2017.

Camp shot the photographs exclusively with her medium format digital Leica S. Her favorite subjects, the North and South Forks of Long Island, have some of the most beautiful coastlines in North America, making Camp’s quest for unique images inexhaustible. Stemming from a career spent capturing light and emotion in her portraiture, Camp has developed a  passion for the way light reflects off the changing surfaces of the ocean.. The violence and activity of breaking waves and the tranquility of a calm sea have been integral within Camp’s seascapes along with exploring color, layers of perception, texture, and moments of energy, as she continues her quest “to be pulled more into the voice of the subject.”

“I consider my photography such a huge extension of myself in that it records what I am seeing and what I am stimulated by in my world,” said photographer EJ Camp. “What inspires me in my portrait work is love and respect for people. I want to capture a feeling that takes me further into that person. Similarly, I love the sea. It changes moment to moment and I never tire of its fusion of light, movement and complexity. The sea is like a face; it has many expressions. Both genres are about catching the moment.”

Renowned for her rich photographic career including celebrity portraits, magazine covers, movie posters and advertising campaigns, EJ Camp has also created extraordinary fine art landscape images. For over 30 years, and throughout the progression of her editorial and commercial career, Camp has photographed the sea and its shores. Her credits include GQ, Glamour, Elle, Esquire, L’Uomo Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Century Fox, Paramount, Pictures, Showtime, Sony Pictures, Warner Brothers and many more.

“Shooting the sea is not dissimilar from shooting a portrait. It may take some time in an unforgivable environment and your subject may be cruel and uncooperative, but with patience and coaxing, its guard will be dropped and the soul of the subject will be revealed,” said Camp

The Sea will be showing from May 4 through June 25, 2017 at Leica Gallery Boston, with an artist talk and opening reception on May 4th 2017 from 4-9pm. For more information, visit www.leicagalleryboston.com.
