Matthew Gamber, assistant professor in the visual arts department, had his unique brand of image-making featured in Photograph Magazine.

The article discusses how Gamber’s photography is grounded in the way the sciences have adapted photography as in illustrative tool. In the publication “Matter” a collaborative project with Bill Sullivan and Mary Voorhees Meehan, takes its thematic cues from a popular science book by the same name published in 1963. Featured in the publication is Gamber’s monochromatic series “Any Color You Like” which uses scientific photo-illustration to create images that are profound and witty. The photos included in this series are black-and-white gelatin silver prints with subject matters that have been chosen to conjure bright colors, some of the objects include: plastic game pieces; fresh herbs; and television test patterns.

In “Basic Ingredients in Complex World” recently shown in Boston at the Gallery Kayafas questions the objectivity of the scientific photograph.  An image in the series titled “Stanford Bunny (x2)” shows a pair of computer generated rabbits set against a field of baby blue, the bunnies are off-set from one another to suggest duplication. These specific rabbits appear to be industrial in nature, a sort of “test pattern” for 3D printers – a three dimensional computer model used to test the capabilities of rapid-prototyping machines. The parody is that they are only presented to the viewer in two dimensions.
