Shutter Speed is curated by Becca Hoffman, Director of the Outsider Art Fair and herself a trained photographer. Said Hoffman, “Achieving a delicate balance between intimacy and voyeurism, the black-and-white street photograph has always held a special place in my heart. Long inspired by Robert Frank’s The Americans, I walk down the street and see in my mind’s eye snapshot after snapshot: moments captured by my memory and windows into the lives of others—ordinary people going about the ordinary matters of everyday existence, the moments that make up our rich and full lives. When I was asked to curate a show for Fountain House Gallery, I was honored by the opportunity and immediately knew that I wanted to explore this notion of a return to a simpler time when pictures were memories, souvenirs, instants captured forever on film."
