Scenes from Home
Virtual PRC Nights featuring Chris Maliga,
Larry Volk, and Matthew Monteith

The global stay-at-home advisories have changed life as we knew it in untold ways. For artists the restrictions are especially poignant as they have the potential to impede creativity and forcibly shift focus away from years of developed work and established modes of capturing images. As one’s focusing eye shifts inward and gazes upon a new confined horizon, many photographers are taking the opportunity to create bodies of work highlighting interior spaces and what home life looks like at this time.  For our second Virtual PRC Nights we feature Chris Maliga who will be sharing images captured in the quiet spaces of home. He will be discussing this work and the dichotomy of the images with his widely exhibited photography of natural environments and the experience of photographing self-portraits in nature.
