From Musée Magazine:
Adam Ekberg’s Minor Spectacles at the George Eastman Museum, on view from January 14 to September 3, defies the idea of minor occurrences by immortalizing them in striking photographs. Walking through the exhibition, one cannot help but be captivated by Ekberg’s talent for capturing the essence of a fleeting moment in time. His works reveal the importance of timing, and as the artist himself says, “There’s one moment where it all comes together.”
Throughout the exhibition, Ekberg’s photographs enchant viewers with subjects that seem otherworldly and grounded in reality. Images of objects splashing and breaking, as well as numerous shots that capture the split second when the subject is at its zenith, force us to confront our notions of what constitutes a spectacle. The way Ekberg freezes these moments in time reminds us that even the smallest, most unremarkable occurrences can be magical if we are present and pay attention.
