For this year’s Fotoseptiembre, and indeed a bit in advance of that exciting month-long photography feast, Digital Pro Lab has turned its large retail space into a pop-up art gallery for a special exhibit entitled “Time Capsule.” Curated by the (dynamic) husband and wife duo of photographer Scott Martin and San Antonio Poet Laureate Jenny Browne, the exhibit features the work of 20 international, national, regional, and local photo artists. The artists were asked to “explore the connection between the arts of photography and poetry.” The resulting exhibit, comprised of 24 images, functions like something of a time capsule, a “collection of objects and information gathered in an attempt to communicate with an imagined future.” The question, of course, becomes an intimidatingly fundamental one: what are the most essential things a person can communicate about themselves, their world, and their time? In the quest to answer this question, one comes to deeper levels of understanding their own existence and the meaning(s) assigned to it.
