MOAH Exhibit Review of It Takes a Village – Distant Memories
Very honored to have received a review of my Exhibit of “Distant Memories” at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History, MOAH – IT TAKES A VILLAGE.
The opening was well attended and thank you to each of my old/new friends who visited.
“Richard Chow’s “Distant Memories”, is a lovely black and white series that takes us from the village to the sea. Capturing elegiac images of a childhood he could’ve experienced on Southern California beaches, but as an immigrant, did not; he’s collected a beautiful series of images into wall installations. Viewed at a remove through pier telescopes and long lenses, Chow lets us view just glimpses of wonder, a personal window into community, family, and love. Subjects from the Manhattan Beach Pier to body-boarders in the surf framed by the shade of a beach umbrella cumulatively shape and recreate an ephemeral time and place that never quite was, but always will be.”
