ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A swarm of starlings swirls into a funnel cloud. A woman’s face stands before a landscape while the wind throws her hair across her face like a veil. A man’s hands grasp a woman’s face from behind her head; he could be massaging, embracing or squeezing it.
These photographic mysteries may evoke a sense of wonder, intrigue or melancholy in viewers of “Fraction of a Second,” opening at both 516 ARTS and the University of New Mexico Art Museum on Friday, June 5. The dual-site exhibition is being guest curated by David Bram, publisher of the Albuquerque-based online Fraction Magazine.
“I want to know why people pulled over to take a picture or walked 500 kilometers to take a picture,” Bram said. “Also, some of these photographs I’m so jealous of; they’re beautiful.”
