Debe Arlook
“ Ways of Seeing”

Debe Arlook is a contemporary photographer who examines perception and (mis)perception using objects, domestic landscapes and street scenes as her subjects.  She writes, “there is no meaning except the meaning we create” and uses this credo as a muse for her conceptual works.  Debe will share how her background in psychology and filmmaking has influenced her construction of images and her belief that photographs form an intimate relationship with viewers and their unique perspectives. Join us to get a glimpse into Debe’s irony, curiosity and poetic sensibilities through her presentation of three stylistically different series.

PasadenaPhotographyArts and Open Show give the public a rare chance to talk directly with creators of photography. Our low-barrier and free shows allow anyone to ask about a project’s technical process, hear amazing backstories and more. Open Show is a social umbrella, connecting diverse organizations and individuals through rotating venues. We shape unique experiences that foster visual literacy.

It’s our intention that Open Show-Pasadena East LA will strengthen our photography community and bring together the public and artistic community in discussion of photography.

The Forum and Open Show are sponsored and produced by PasadenaPhotographyArts
