Santa Barbara Museum of Art Presents
Busch's large format black and white photographs, taken with a 20 x 24 camera that the artists designed and built himself, are images of great subtlety and irony. Through a combination of Busch's photographic sensibility and his impeccable technique, the ordinary is raised to a monumental scale. The street scenes presented in this exhibition open your eyes to the beauty and subtlety of the everyday. Ranging in scale from 8x20" to 20x24", the images are Busch's attempt to "record reality more accurately than I can actually see it."
Scene on the Street
August 25 - December 2, 2012
"I am interested in presenting reality more
accurately than I can actually see it.
On one level, my work is about a certain density.
There is more to see than we can actually see."
