Peter Moriarty

When: July 4-Aug. 25 2018

The Massachusetts-based photographer describes his current show at Rochester’s BigTown Gallery as emerging from “a shift in cadence that I needed within my studio practice.” While preparing his book Warm Room: Photographs from Historic Greenhouses, Moriarty began to interact with both flora and the tools of his craft in a more fundamental, stripped-down way: by creating camera-less photograms using light-sensitive paper and plants from his studio. “Light & Paper/Mes Plantes” features the result of these efforts. Moriarty’s playful compositions remind us that photography, at its most elemental, is shadow play.
