Jim Kasson: Chronography

Jim KassonThursday, January 9 – Sunday, April 12, 2020

By definition, a chronograph is a special timepiece used to mark the exact instant of an occurrence.  Just so, Jim Kasson’s photographs use time as an active agent – speeding it up and slowing it down to capture an exact moment.  Kasson’s show at the Monterey Museum of Art will be a survey of his work relating to California and the Monterey Peninsula in particular.  The exhibition will feature early black and white photographs, vivid time-based color works of urban subjects, and agriculture in the Salinas Valley.
