Double Exposure

In Double Exposure, Peter Wise and Catherine Wilcox-Titus, use photography and photomontage, to create images in dialog with each other that are inspired by the theatricality of early 20th-century movies. In the photographs by Dr. Wilcox, “streets and storefronts are seen as theatrical sets. Mannequins and objects in window displays are filled with dramatic potential.” Peter Wise’s technique draws from film production, and “mimes the language of film with photo stills, jump cuts, and arrangements that suggest the editing process of film.”  The results of both approaches are unexpectedly eerie and provocative.
