Bill Armstrong will be speaking at Soho Photo Gallery on Thursday, April 14, 2016, from 6.00 – 7.00 pm., as part of Soho Photo’s ‘Contemporary Photographers’ talks. He will discuss photographs from his Infinity Series:

For almost 20 years Mr. Armstrong has been making a wide range of coloristic photographs using his unique process of photographing collages extremely out of focus. He conjures a mysterious trompe l’oeil world that hovers between the real and the fantastic, where place may be suggested, but is never defined, and where the identity of the amorphous figures remains in question. It is a world that might exist in memory, in dreams, or, perhaps, in a parallel universe yet unvisited. Extreme de-focusing enables him to blend and distill hues, creating rhapsodies of color that are meditative pieces—glimpses into a space of pure color, beyond our focus, beyond our ken.
