isual subjects are reconstructed through Brooklyn photographer Kobi Walsh’s lens, breaking objects into delicate surface refractions of light and colour that challenge how we perceive familiar objects and spaces that surround us. His pieces target the inherently subjective nature of our visual experience, while aiming to preserve the fidelity of these surfaces. Walsh’s process sees him shooting his subject through, or on, various materials such as textured glass and plastic, rippling water, reflective metal and ice. Often multiple images are taken between the space of only a few seconds, observing how even the slightest changing passage of time can alter what is

seen – a constantly fluctuating palette of light and colour, movement and form. Using camera in hand rather than paint and canvas, he draws inspiration from the impressionist movement and the spontaneous renderings of nature as an amalgam of light. Originally from Chicago, Walsh’s photographic practice is informed by his degree in cognitive and brain sciences, incorporating an understanding of the neurological foundations of perception with his investigations of the expectations of visual observation. His work has won multiple photography awards, and has been exhibited in New York, Chicago and Boston. kobiwalsh.com kobi@kobiwalsh.com
