Lynn Geesaman

Lynn Geesaman’s photographs always draw one in. And after that, you stand around in the image, thinking, Now what am I doing here? I came here to get something; what was it? The fuzzy, melting landscapes have the memory-dissolving qualities of a late spring day—and, quite honestly, who knows whether that’s good or bad? But these days, which seem to be an era of doldrums in the art world (however well masked by stratospheric speculation and its attendant glamour), art that affects its spectator with this kind of subtlety is worth a second look.
