The William Turner Gallery in Santa Monica will present No Such Place, an exhibit of photographs by Jay Mark Johnson, beginning Saturday, Feb. 23 through March 30.
An opening reception is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 23 at the gallery at Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Ave. E1, Santa Monica.
Johnson will be exhibiting his timeline photographs from around the globe. Featured in the show are color photographs, including a 30-foot-long triptych, depicting the migrations of people and their vehicles across attenuated landscapes and saturated terrains.
Such locations include the dockyards of Singapore and the rice paddies of Cambodia to the dairy farms of Australia and the populated centers of Rome, Prague, Hamburg, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Johnson’s images explore people’s obsession with technology and how the use of these machines not only dominates the environment, but fashions the manner in which people perceive and interact with the world, a gallery spokesperson said.
“We surround ourselves with machines. They shape our existence, and with them, our thoughts. We travel in cars, trains and planes, and encapsulated in tiny vessels, isolated from the outside world. And the faster we race across the landscape, the more it becomes a blur,” says Johnson, a 30-year photographer.
