Thus the goal of curator Stephanie Dowda in “Echoes of the Sublime,” at Emily Amy Gallery through October 22, is both ambitious and admirable. Bearing in mind what the sublime has meant in more philosophically secure eras of life and thought, she sets out to find what the sublime means for American photographers in the second decade of the 21st century.
Dowda has realized that the greatest insight regarding the contemporary sublime is that the constructions of the sublime all reside within human perception. Whether what we see is sincere, snarky or sublime ultimately depends on us and how we choose to frame it.
