Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents My Paris by Peter Glendinning, the fourth exhibition in the 2017-2018 SRO Photo Gallery Exhibition Series. My Paris will be on view November 14th – December 16th, 2017. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
For My Paris, Glendinning focuses on an apartment in the Marais he has rented for two weeks each summer for several years. The patina of the life of the owner that becomes part of his being during his time there is the subject of these portraits en creux. “Portraits en creaux” is the French term for his approach to art, meaning “hollow portrait.”
He views the experience of adopting another’s domicile as one’s own as an opportunity to recognize a resonance that is both sympathetic and real. His photographs reflect on and reveal essential natures of another man, of himself, and in that place of imagination, My Paris.
Peter Glendinning received his MFA degree from the Department of Experimental Studio in the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. He has received the National Parks Service MotorCities Award of Excellence, ASMP Best of 2015 Award, and more. Glendinning is an IMPOSSIBLE Camera GMBH Sponsored Photographer, and the recipient of a Coursera MOOC Grant.
