Charleston Center for Photography Features Photography by Jen Ervin

The Charleston Center for Photography in Charleston, SC, is presenting Jen Ervin: Land and Family, on view through Aug. 16, 2013.

Ervin reprises her view of ethereal childhood in the South with enigmatic landscape and portrait photography at Charleston Center for Photography.

Ervin’s work is unique, as her photo tool of choice is the gelatin silver magic of a 1963 Polaroid Land 100 camera. She sees the moment, but she gets only one chance to seize the moment via Polaroid’s required one-shot-at-a-time technique.

“I set my intentions to find unguarded places that often hide, from an inattentive eye,” says Ervin. “Synonymous with poetry and fiction,” she continues, “we embark on these new adventures, blurring the lines of reality.”

Charleston Artist Jennifer Appleton Ervin was born in 1971 in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, and later moved to South Carolina in her formative years. Ervin studied painting and photography at Francis Marion University in Florence, SC and received her MFA in Graphic Design from Boston University in 2002.
