The Dodd’s Post-MFA Fellow in Photography, Justin Schmitz exhibits a new body of work developed during his stay in Georgia. Continuing his examination of rural teenage life, Schmitz photographed crowds of students at high school football games. Stilled in action and printed as an elongated frame, the young people become mannered representations of teenage life, the total catharsis of the win.

Our Bodies Work as One

Video 101: Justin Schmitz Jan 5-16, 2015
Lamar Dodd School of Art 270 River Road, Athens GA

Continuing our video series Video 101, the Dodd’s Post-MFA Fellow, Justin Schmitz, presents Our Bodies Work as One. The work is a five minute looping video featuring a series of time-based portraits of young men at a Metallica cover band. Schmitz slows down and overlaps images, layering on a re-imagined version of the cover band’s bass solo from the song Damage Inc. to create an almost ethereal reflection of the teenage experience. Schmitz explains: “This video amplifies the listening experience of my subjects to uncover the cathartic experience of live music and reveal my own recollection of the importance of using music to discover myself as a young person.”
