1440-Degree Landscape: Panoramic Photographs by Richard Hackel

October 17 – December 30, 2016

Exhibit Reception: Monday, October 24, 6-8pm

Cambridge Arts invites you to view time-lapse panoramic photographs by Richard Hackel. After moving here from Michigan, where he was a medical ophthalmic photographer for twenty-nine years, Richard created work for Gallery 344 by spending eighteen months photographing selected public spaces in Cambridge as they changed through the seasons.

Always interested in what we cannot see as well as what we can, Richard creates views that are at once familiar and disorienting. While presented on a flat plane, the images are spatially circular – the photograph turns us around without moving our bodies. Offering a personal interpretation of his newly adopted city, Richard’s work collapses time and prompts a closer consideration of how we navigate and understand our environment through our senses. 

Gallery 344 is free and open to the public.
