WhiteSpace: April Greiman Photography
A collection of 33 digital photographs by American graphic designer April Greiman. The images of landscapes and objects in the built environment are enhanced by curious digital icons and juxtaposed with vertical typographic texts, both autobiographical and philosophical.
Initially captured while driving or walking through remote spaces, these images represent Greiman's ongoing vision of color and lightness. The interleaved texts present the musing of 25 women on the subject of whitespace, becoming a rhythmic meditation on emptiness, openness, beauty, and fear from a multitude of provocative perceptions.
April’s friendships with women, like her images, are part of her spectrum of light, nurtured over decades, simmered to perfection.
