Jim Golden: Collections

RICHARD SPEER
Monday December 30
Pushdot
2505 SE 11th Ave., Suite 104
 
A collection of keys—hundreds of them. Dozens of obsolete cameras. Collections of scissors, musical instruments, rifles, plastic Santa Claus figurines, cassette tapes and cassingles…there is nothing, apparently, Americans won’t collect. Photographer Jim Golden catalogs our obsession with collecting in his dramatic tableaux, lining up objects in vast rows, then climbing on a ladder and shooting them from an extreme high angle. The finished images look like photos taken from an airplane looking down on landscapes of assembled junk. This extreme point of view imparts a sense of objectivity to what is otherwise a neurotically subjective hobby. The photos are even stronger for being created the old-fashioned way, rather than digitally composed. Through Jan. 31.
