Joseph Podlesnik

November 23, 2020 - December 4, 2020

Joseph Podlesnik is trained mainly in drawing and painting and it is this experience which seems to influence his approach to photography. 

For Podlesnik, the camera lens depicts perspective too easily, which is why he captures and makes photographs which often frustrate readable perspectival space. For him, the photographic image is not only a window through which to see the visible world, but also a maker of flat surfaces which stunt or block logical space. He sees photography and pictures not only as documentation, but as commenting on or reenacting perception itself. 

Podlesnik lives in Phoenix, Arizona and exhibits his work nationally and internationally. He is currently Visual Arts Adjunct Faculty at Stockton University in New Jersey, and is Program Coordinator/Facilitator for the Digital Photography Cornell Certificate Program. He has also served as Lead Faculty, Associate Professor of Art Foundations for the Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division. He received his MFA in drawing & painting from Cornell University.
