This exhibition of photographic works published by the Canadian Photographic Portfolio Society (CPPS) highlights the launch of a new commission by Jessica Eaton. Acclaimed for her innovative experiments in colour photography, Eaton applies unique analogue techniques to manipulate properties of light. In her vibrant images she pushes the rhetoric of abstraction to provoke questions about perceptual experience. The photographs in this new series are based on light bending through glass prisms. They allude to photography as a process of drawing with light, specifically Berenice Abbott’s “The Science Pictures.” A photography graduate from Emily Carr University who now lives in Montreal, Eaton has quickly risen to international prominence. She has exhibited widely including the Photographer’s Gallery, London, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and the Daegu Photography Biennale, South Korea. She was awarded the 2012 Photography Jury Grand Prize at the Hyères Festival in France. Eaton is represented by Jessica Bradley, Toronto, Higher Pictures, New York and M + B Gallery, Los Angeles.
