Carol Kleinman Artist Statement
My work is exclusively devoted to photographing reflections. In this age of layered, manipulated, “Photoshopped” images, I am dedicated to capturing reality through the un-manipulated “single exposure”. My message is - “the world is a visually complex place and we can explore the many layers of life through the apparent layers found in reflections.”
A great deal of the impact of my work stems from the fact that my images actually existed at a specific time and place and are not my creations or manipulations. Nothing I do is set up or manufactured. What you see in my images is what I saw. My images say, "Look more deeply...notice the complexities of life...enrich yourself with the wonders that surround you at each moment."
Over the past 30 years I’ve worked in many media, among them sculpture, oils, watercolors, glass, collage and construction. The type of photography I have done for the past 20 years combines a great deal of what I’ve learned from these media, particularly collage. The most exciting thing to me about the photography I do is its direct connection to reality – the capture of a moment in time.
