Redeye, a diary.REDEYE
A DIARY. PHOTOGRAPHS SELECTED AND EDITED BY RON BROWNSON.
Ann Shelton

“Shelton insists on a premise at the very heart of photography: people are good to look at… documentary photography should be reminded of the superficial thrill of the ‘now’… in Redeye the idea of the celebrity meets the idea of the nobody… rather than make you remember and feel concern Shelton makes you forget you cared in the first place.”
Giovanni Intra – Pavement magazine

Redeye is a social diary in photographs, it depicts an urban community from an insider’s perspective. Photographed using a snapshot camera, and taking maximum advantage of the immediacy it offers, these images employ the facade of photography as a tool to their advantage, embracing the veneer inherent in both the medium and the act of dressing up/posing for the camera. REDEYE is an open invitation to look.
