LA GRANDE, Ore. – Eastern Oregon University professor Michael Sell has returned from a year-long sabbatical, and following a gallery opening at Nightingale Gallery, will present a Colloquium on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2024, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Sell’s photographic work explores mortality, subcultures, and the progression of time through ritualistic and documentary practices. Using traditionally formal approaches to his subjects, these documents are sterile, still, and full of life; the work is a way for the artist to investigate the silences that exist between each subject and the camera while elevating the importance of every subject. This will be the focus of his Colloquium inside the Nightingale Gallery.
“By presenting images from different series together, I hope to put forward photography as a method for communicating our individual stories while serving as evidence of the capturing and passage of time.”
