In this exhibition Vermont photographer Todd R. Lockwood explores a dramatic new technique for creating portrait images. Classically composed in black and white, Lockwood’s “cinema portraits” are presented as moving images on ultra-high resolution flatscreen displays, captured with the same digital camera used in many of today’s Hollywood films. His subjects—artists, writers, poets and musicians—are filmed as they listen silently to their own performances, achieving an uncanny, almost hyper-real presence and revealing a surprising psychological intensity. Lockwood studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology and has exhibited in galleries throughout northern New England, and across the U.S. As a musician his Vermont recording studio, White Crow, hosted such artists as Odetta, Phish and Alice Cooper.
