"Displaced Perspectives: Photographs and Installation by Baer"
2001-06-30 until 2001-10-10
California Museum of Photography
Riverside, CA, USA

Displaced Perspectives combines still photography with installation art to offer a fascinating look at this innovative young artist's original and inventive method of both constructing and deconstructing complex photographic spaces.

Baer's large color photographs are bafflingly bizarre spaces formed as the result of ingenious set construction combined with view camera technology. Baer's work begins with the building of large and elaborate labor and time intensive sets that take months to complete. These temporary sets are then photographed with a view camera, the resulting image a conglomeration of collapsed and confused planes, ambiguous scale, obsessive detail and soft-focus created by the view camera's tilts and swings. In the age of the digitally altered photograph, Baer's images are a testament to pre-visualization and pure photography.

For Displaced Perspectives, Baer will reconstruct in the museum's main gallery the set for his latest photograph. This finished photograph will be displayed, along with eight earlier images, on the mezzanine bridge overlooking the installation. Museum-goers will thus be offered the unique opportunity to simultaneously experience the actual constructed space and the finished product.

Baer earned his BFA in Photography from the State University of New York at Purchase in 1991 and has participated in a number of group shows. He is the recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, the Aaron Siskind Foundation Fellowship, and the J.S. Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
