Description and review of a joint Crocker Art Museum and Viewpoint Photographic Art Center virtual photographic art exhibit: Voices: Speaking with Your Photographic Eye.
April is Photography Month Sacramento! However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic what was going to be a physical photography art exhibit at the Crocker Art Museum has now been transformed into a virtual photographic art exhibit.

Voices: Speaking With Your Photographic Eye showcases 68 photographic works by a group of very talented college and high school students.

The subject matter of the photographs are varied – people, landscapes, buildings, objects, etc.
What I found most interesting was that the majority of the images are accompanied by a sentence or two written by the artist.
In some instances the artist explains the story behind what we are seeing. For example, in Passed On the artist shares that his grandmother has “passed on” and that the ring in the foreground of her photo has been “passed on” to his mother.
Some of the artists do not include any additional information – but you will notice that the title of the photograph says it all. Check out Innocence and you will understand what I mean.
Other of the artists explain what they were seeking to accomplish, where they took the photograph, how and/or why they took the photograph, and what the photograph is meant to convey.
- One of Many (Nicholas Radke)
- Malida In The Mist (Michael Iredale)
- Meditation Light (Sabina Zildzic)
- Descent (Angel Chea)
- Tears of a Mother (Binh Nguyen)
- Bunny Tracks (Katherine M. DaSilva)
- Guiding Sunset (Melissa Sanchez-Robinson)
- Cognitive Corpse (Molly Berg)
- Untitled (Niko Lara)
- Leaky (Timothy Dimal)
- DIS.CON.NECT (Veronica Elena)
To sum up, I enjoyed the opportunity to scroll through the exhibit, and I hope you do as well. If we can’t be at the exhibit to view it in person this virtual exhibit is the next best thing!
