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.

The four artists of Paperscapes explore the possibilities of paper as a medium that straddles the divide between the analog past of print and our current digital age. Using a mixture of traditional and experimental techniques, these artists create immersive environments that challenge our traditional understanding of paper as simply a vehicle for the printed word. Incorporating light, shadow, sound, and texture, the works of Paperscapes respond to the architectural setting of the Art Alliance, transforming its turn-of-the-century domestic interior into an otherworldly space.
Susan White will be teaching Prints + Books: A Crash Course this Spring! To view the official press release for Paperscapes, go here.
