Bruce Bumstead, Colin Corneau, Tim Smith
Opening Reception: Thursday June 19, 7:30PM
Building on the ideas in the Main Gallery exhibition Upshot, Endless Days brings together Brandon Sun photographers Bruce Bumstead, Colin Corneau, and Tim Smith. The images, chosen by the photographers to respond to the theme, span their various projects and assignments, from the Provincial Exhibition’s Summer Fair, to the Kiss concert, local ballet lessons, and daily life. The photographs – some playful, others serious and heartbreaking – are a testament to the constant tension between the desire hold time still through documentation, and acknowledging its inevitable flow.
“If, before every action, we were to begin by weighing up the consequences, thinking about them in earnest, first the immediate consequences, then the probable, then the possible, then the imaginable ones, we should never move beyond the point where our first thought brought us to a halt. The good and evil resulting from our words and deeds go on apportioning themselves, one assumes in a reasonably uniform and balanced way, throughout all the days to follow, including those endless days, when we shall not be here to find out, to congratulate ourselves or ask for pardon, indeed there are those who claim that this is the much talked of immortality.”
― José Saramago, Blindness
