Digital Photography Certificate Capstone Exhibition - Patricia Shields, THE ROCK



Digital Photography Certificate Capstone Exhibition
January 12 - February 28, 2017
Reception: Thursday, January 12, 5:00PM - 6:30PM

Patricia Shields is a Philadelphia based photographer and UArts Digital Photography Certificate candidate whose work documents and preserves silent moments in time. Her recent photographs take iconic maximum high-security federal prison Alcatraz (San Francisco, CA) as subject. Americans have long been transfixed by the brutality that took place inside the walls of Alcatraz, and fascinated with the notorious inhabitants imprisoned there. These images of the shuttered, famously inescapable penitentiary capture the ominous mood of isolation and confinement still present today. Light streams through windows—a sort of prisoner’s cinema—onto the crumbling paint of another era.
Exhibition is free and open to the public.
