Art Focus with guest Christopher Rauschenberg

Joseph Gallivan will interview photographer Christopher Rauschenberg about Museum, his show of recent photographs which runs at the Elizabeth leach Gallery January 3 to February 2, 2013.

For his photographs, Christopher Rauschenberg takes inspiration from his daily life and extensive travels. A recent journey to St. Petersburg gave rise to Museum, a series of photographs that capture arresting and absurd moments in the still reverence of museum settings. Rauschenberg creates unexpected juxtapositions of the unaltered every day, captured glances that illustrate wit and beauty that is often overlooked. His quietly scintillating compositions draw the viewer into an environment that allows for greater investigation and contemplation.
