Over the years, long-time folk art collectors John and Teenuh Foster have assembled an exceptional group of snapshot photographs from forays to antique shops, flea markets and on-line auctions. Rediscovered, these photographs have been given new life and lie open to reinterpretation. They invite the viewer to mine their imaginations to create new meanings or remember in new ways. In this exhibition, over 65 photographs from the Foster collection have been selected from hundreds, the bulk of which are shown in their original small snapshot format. From this collection, John Foster has selected several images to present as large format inkjet prints, further transforming these mysterious moments into powerful narrative vessels.
