Photography · Wood
Guest at: Northrup King Building1500 Jackson Street Northeast
Welcome to the view through the lens of Jay Schlie’s camera. Looking at moments that have been stopped in a split second. Jay’s photography is often based on an adventure, seeing something for the very first time. He will go out on a bike ride in places he has never been and take a few photos, capture the moment with fresh eyes, then move on. Jay very rarely sets up shots or uses photoshop. How you see the photo is how Jay saw it with his eyes.
A lot of Jay’s work is mounted on wood to bring out highlights, character, and overall emotion of the photo. All of his work mounted on wood is a one-off original piece, you cannot replicate the wood. The wood came into play as Jay had found memories of when photos were tactile. Going through stacks of photos, cutting them up, making collages, and creating zines when he was younger influenced his current work. Finding the right photo and matching it to the wood brought back the sense of tactile photos. This pushed both Jay’s eye for photos and creativity with what could be done with the photo and the wood.
