Louisburg College in Louisburg, NC, Features Works by Andrew Ross

Louisburg College in Louisburg, NC, will present TRANSIENCE: Large Format Photography by Andrew Ross, on view in the Edith C. Lumpkin Community Gallery, located in the Seby B. Jones Performing Arts Center, from Oct. 17 through Nov. 26, 2013. A reception and lecture will be held on Oct. 17, beginning at 7pn.

Ross has been making photographs for over 25 years. He received a BA degree in Philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he developed and supervised a successful commercial photography business for 10 years. Ross took his work in a different direction as he would move to Florida and receive an MFA degree in Photography from Florida State University. Currently he lives in Raleigh, NC, where in addition to his photography, he is a web designer, video, and multi-media artist.

“My Transience series examines the boundary between vision and perception, seeing and imagining, the real and the remembered,” says Ross. “These images are both an inward journey and an outward expression, as I look for my place in society, society’s role within my life, and the significance of my presence along the timeline of history.”

“To live in a world of perception is to live in isolation; no two people experience the world in the same way. The more society comes up with ways to over-stimulate our thoughts and our senses, the more our perception separates from reality - we isolate ourselves from that which surrounds us.”

Ross continues, “I see reflections of myself played out through the lives of others. As I observe, I begin to realize the discrepancy between my thoughts and reality. I do not see the world from the outside; I see it from the inside. These images I create through my camera are memories and dreams, both real and perceived.”
