Jean-Christian Bourcart Visits RWU

On a windy, rainy day here at RWU, things were brightened up by a visit from the photographer, JC Bourcart ( 
Stardust, 2005-6, Jean-Christian Bourcart
 "I photograph so that I have an excuse for looking. I photograph to grasp what is otherwise inaccessible. I photograph because photography causes less damage than a machine gun. I photograph to forget. My work is a way of looking through a half-open door, revealing a place where stories aren’t articulated or explained but remain secret, affording us the pleasure of discriminating, discovering, imagining."

- J. C. Bourcart
