May 6–June 24
When viewed with sensitivity and an open heart, the potency of this photographic series—the work of photographer and independent filmmaker Shane Bunnag—grows all-absorbing, revealing a soul ever in touch with the elemental spirits of place. In this instance they are the nature entities of the Mani, the fabled peninsular of Greece, which had been the artist’s childhood home. Shane captures the soul of each site through long exposure shots of his model dancing in worship of the local Greek gods. The resulting images are hallucinatory, like the sacred mushroom visions celebrated in ancient religious rites.
