The John Cleary Gallery is proud to welcome back San Diego based photographer, David Fokos, for his fourth solo exhibition. Fokos, whose work hauntingly captures the silent dignity of its surroundings, has made a name for himself as a unique voice in the field of black and white landscape photography.

Just as our impression of the world is a compilation of numerous experiences, so does Fokos allow long exposures to capture an “average time” of a particular setting. In this way he wields his camera more as a scientific instrument, likening the experience to a biologist’s use of a microscope or an astronomer’s telescope by revealing what is felt but often unseen.

Fokos’ work has been exhibited both across the United States and internationally, appearing in galleries and institutions ranging from the Emon Gallery in Japan to the Robert Klein Gallery in Boston, MA to the photography collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
