You have until April 18th to visit the photographic works of students taking this semesters Intro to Digital Photography course. This year’s photography exhibit, Focus ’16, is hanging in Grant Hall’s Conoco Phillips Gallery and will remain showcased there until Monday, April 18th.
Course instructor Tim Remick, has taught photography as an adjunct professor at both Alaska Pacific University and the University of Alaska Anchorage. In addition to teaching, Remick is an entrepreneurial photographer and a Digital Imaging Specialist for the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center.
Remick’s photographs have been presented in multiple exhibits at the Anchorage Museum, including his 2012 exhibit After: Portraits from Denali, which capture an intimate look into the face of exhaustion and triumph as climbers return to base camp after summiting North America’s largest peak. Determined to capture these images, Remick spent two seasons at Denali’s base camp, hoping to see the raw emotion which only exists on a climbers face after being weathered and challenged, and torn-up by a mountain for weeks on end, and then persevering. The photo series became a bank of these expressions—it captured those moments in twenty large format, close-up portraits.
His images have also been a part of the Banff Mountain Film World Tour and Traveling Photography Exhibition.
More recent work of Remick’s were included the Anchorage Museum exhibit titled GYRE: The Plastic Ocean. The exhibit, which included twenty-six artists and more than eighty pieces of artwork, explored the relationship between humans and the ocean in a contemporary culture of consumption.
