The Griffin Museum of Photography presents distressed:memories by Lou Jones, the exhibition is is the personal vision of Jones’ subconscious visions. It is these dreams he sketches, recreates and brings to life that hang on the walls of the museum this month.
From his artist statement – distressed:memories is my personal labor to document my internal world, i.e. to investigate those things that I know, I have seen but that do not really exist. Many of the photographs are from my dreams. These potentials for creation are actualized when they enter consciousness as images. Photography allows them to graduate from my fantasy and enter the real world. They may even cross over and maybe reveal shared visions: mythology, fairy tales, religious rituals, universal Jungian archetypes.
Lou Jones’ eclectic career has evolved from commercial to the personal. It has spanned every format, film type, artistic movement and technological change. He maintains a studio in Boston, Massachusetts and has photographed for Fortune 500 corporations, international companies and local small businesses. He has initiated long term projects on the civil wars in Central America, death row, Olympics Games and pregnancy; and published multiple books.
