Sylvester Jacobs + Ben Mudd | photographic observations | Cathy Gregory Studio Gallery
Opening reception 4-7 pm Saturday, May 20
May 20 to June 17, 2017
St. Louis artists, Sylvester Jacobs & Ben Mudd, exhibit photographic works at Cathy Gregory Studio Gallery, opening May 20, 2017. Mr. Jacobs captures the moment, often unplanned, attempting to catch the spirit of the places and people he photographs. Mr. Mudd composes tight vignettes of the relics and debris of human habitation found in abandoned buildings and overgrown sites. They each create statements about a moment in time allowing our imagination to craft stories about persons, places and circumstances.
Mr. Jacobs created numerous photo essay books while living in Europe, and has work in both the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Collection of the Arts Council of Great Britain. Mr. Mudd is noted for his textural compositions and his evocative portraiture.
