Gerald Pisarzowski has an intimate relationship with place; he returns time and again to photograph places he knows and has been before. He is looking for the essence, the soul, the magic of his favorite subjects in Pine River/Scott's Falls, the CNE Midway, Botanicals and Newfoundland. The silky surface of his platinum prints do feel embedded with a certain magic, and energy emanates from the rhythmic forms. Beyond place Pisarzowski takes interest in opposing forces- rigid and delicate form, movement and scale, awe inspired light and the depth of darkness. Layers of time and study, the act of knowing a place is translated in the prints. There is nothing obvious or direct; Pisarzowski has unlocked the deepest secrets of his natural subjects.
