Amanda Marchand will be leading a collaborative photo project during the Photo Alliance Book Symposium at the San Francisco Art Institute on Saturday, February 4th, 2017 at 12:30pm. The collaborative photo project is inspired by her recent artist book and series, Because the Sky. Marchand will invite visitors and passersby to form a meditation circle, sitting on photo sensitive paper, in creating a large-scale lumen print using the human form. Her timely project combines photography, meditation, and poetry to acknowledge the importance of community strength in the context of our turbulent times.

"Blacks, pale yellows, an array of neutrals and multitude of blues — ranging from robins-egg to midnight — are the predominant colors. Overall, despite the intrusion here and there of a few louder colors, the overall emotional tone of these paintings and drawings is hushed. While California inspired this series, what we see speaks less about place than about natural forces that equate to time. Set in low relief, these “horizon lines” become “windows” through which the elements can be seen lashing land, sea and sky. In freezing such moments, the fabric lines function as both formal compositional devices and as a visual cues, drawing attention to in-between spaces that read as layers of accumulated sediment: core samples from eons passed."
