Along with the â€œSummer Photo Show 2011â€, the gallery will be having its 3rd â€œOne Night Stand Exhibition Seriesâ€ project, where every month a promising Florida photography student is selected to exhibit in the gallery during the popular Gallery Walks, every second Saturday of the month. This time, the documentary series entitled â€œA Single Momentâ€ from the Miami International University of Art and Design student Janel Kilnisan will be featured.
According to Janel, â€œEveryone has a moment in the day where they want to just get away from the chaos of the world, and escape in their own thoughts. Reflecting on life, figuring out where to go next, or how they ended up here in this moment. This series is a narrative portrait series that explores that of the everyday individual, the people that could be your friend, brother, sister, neighbor, or mother. I chose to photographs my subjects in their own environment, capturing them at the quietest, loneliest, even most personal moments; the moment where they are in there own thoughts.â€
Janel chooses to shot this series with her medium format, twin lens camera. Using it allowed her to be at the same level with her subjects, utilizing her camera more as a window and allowing the viewer to become a spectator into her subjectâ€™s world.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
