About the Exhibition

April 9–June 19

Hyde Gallery

After thirty years working in black and white and a recent retrospective, nationally celebrated photographer and Guggenheim Fellow Gregory Conniff was “looking for a way to a new place.”

Incredibly, and fortuitously, that “new place” had been part of his neighborhood life for decades. The intimate reflecting pool of the Olbrich Botanical Gardens inspired a resurgence of purpose and led to abstracted—indeed, upside down—but specific colorful reports of water marked by motion and light in which all sense of orientation vanishes.
