Project B art opening reception: Camera Era: Freeze Frames from a World Long Gone

Project B [http://www.projectb.com/collections/spring-2014/products/studio-cowboy-1]

Showing in Houston for the first time during the 2014 FotoFest Biennial, San Francisco-based Project B will present a solo exhibition titled Camera Era: Freeze Frames from a World Long Gone. Co-founded by artists Barbara Levine and Paige Ramey, Project B specializes in the collecting, preservation and publishing of vintage photographs made by unknown photographers. The artists combine unusual artistic and curatorial practices to their archive of found photos to create one of a kind books and large format pigment prints.

Levine has been collecting vernacular photography for nearly 25 years, sifting through thousands of photos at antique stores, flea markets and on eBay.

Through re-photographing, the duo is able to maintain the surface wear, detail and patina, and by printing them large format the viewer is able to see the image from a different point of view. The result is a captivating look at the richness and mystery behind a photo from the past whose story is a mystery.

On view through May 4.
