Jon: Bobby Neel Adams’ “Family Tree” at Blue Sky Gallery…

I was really taken aback by Bobby Neel Adams photographic collection, Family Tree, currently showing at Portland’s Blue Sky Gallery through the rest of November. The images in the show examine the genetic similarities between immediate family members by way of a very methodical (though no less startling) process. Adams poses, dresses and manually resizes his models so that two identical images are created. He then tears, overlaps, and glues the images together to create a eerily fluid and cohesive image.

The photographs are printed larger than actual human size and it is really worth heading down to Blue Sky to see them in person. To get the full effect, you relly have to be standing face to face with these strange, twin sets of eyes.

Go Go Go!
