Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents Both Sides by Rick Rembisz, the fourth exhibition in the 2016 – 2017 SRO Photo Gallery Exhibition Series. Both Sides will be on view November 16th – December 18th, 2016. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
For Both Sides, Rembisz interviews and photographs participants in the WWII Veterans Weekend in Waxahachie, TX. This event recreates a 1940s World War II atmosphere with living history participants and camps, culminating in a reenactment battle.
The artist uses small cameras and short focal lengths to capture participants of this event in a snapshot-like manner, thus emphasizing the difference between their everyday lives and their chosen characters. The artist highlights “an element of play” by tilting the portraits with the occupation of the subjects.
Rick Rembisz attended Baylor University (Waco, TX). Retired from a career in business, he focuses on street photography. His work has been selected for the 2014 and 2015 Photo Review competitions. Rembisz exhibits nationally.
