John Chiara, FOR-SITE Foundation at Nisenan, Nevada City, 2011

“John Chiara’s intuitive, performative photographs reveal almost hallucinatory scenes that deploy surreal shifts of color, light, and skewed perspective to create a visually stunning experience. Creating his own cameras, Chiara’s unique photographs are made using the direct exposure of light onto paper—compressing the traditional photographic processes into one singular event. John Chiara: California (Aperture/Pier 24 Photography, 2017) brings together over ninety of Chiara’s surreal, thrilling, landscapes for which he has become known.”
