VERNACULAR VISIONS was a public slideshow series of found 35mm photo slides, curated and presented by Justin Rhody 2013-2018. Each distinctive program is accompanied by a unique audio mix of related (and unrelated) sounds & musics. Every other program, half of the night’s program is dedicated to presenting the work of a guest photographer or filmmaker (who either incorporates found imagery into their work or is self-taught). This series is an exploration and celebration of the medium and its subjects, spoken and coded in the visual dialect of the amateur practitioner. Free to attend & open to the public, the show is presented in a relaxed tone which offers the opportunity for meditative contemplation, as well as casual and comfortable social interaction.
