Randy Blythe bersiap gelar pameran foto A Longer View di Leica Gallery, Boston, AS pada 13 September hingga 11 November mendatang. Ini adalah pameran kedua vokalis Lamb of God itu setelah menggelar pameran Show Me What You’re Made Of di New York, Mei 2015 lalu.

Menurut pernyataan Blythe di akun Instagramnya, A Longer View akan memuat karya yang mencerminkan perspektifnya soal motif sosial dan politik. Blythe menyatakan ada tiga tema besar yang menjadi poros pameran kali ini, yaitu protes akan kondisi lingkungan hidup, efek manusia terhadap lingkungan dan kondisi alam yang masih sehat.

“Foto-foto ini diambil di tengah perjalanan saya di seluruh dunia, masing-masing melengkapi dan saling berlawanan untuk menyatakan suatu buktu konkret bahwa orang-orang di luar sana muak atas cara kita memerlakukan planet ini (satu-satunya rumah kita).”

“Alasan kemuakan ini muncul cukup jelas (coba buka mata kalian, buktinya ada di mana-mana) dan (untungnya) masih ada lingkungan hidup yang bisa dirawat dan dilindungi. Aliran politik, keyakinan pribadi, kecenderungan beragama, semua hal itu tidak akan berpengaruh bagi keturunan apabila kita tidak berhasil mewariskan lingkungan yang berdaya hidup. Perubahan harus terjadi SAAT INI JUGA,” tulis Blythe.

 

I’m very excited to announce that my latest photography exhibition, “A Longer View”, will be opening at the Leica Gallery Boston on Sept. 13, 2018, from 6 pm to 9 pm, with an artist’s talk the following day, Sept. 14, from 5 pm to 7 pm. The exhibit (running from Sept 13th to Nov 11th of 2018) will be centered on three themes I have shot over the last few years: pictures of environmentally-focused protests, images of man’s detrimental effect on the environment, & landscape shots of pristine natural beauty. These images, drawn from my travels across the world, compliment & contrast each other to state an evidence-based premise: people are fed up with the cavalier disregard with which we treat our planet (our only home), there are clearly visible reasons for this anger (everywhere you look, if you open your eyes), and (thankfully) there are still wild places left to nurture and protect. Politics, personal beliefs, religious inclinations- none of that will matter one bit to our descendants if we don’t leave them a home capable of sustaining life. Things have to to change, and this change has to begin NOW. From the artist’s statement: “It is my hope that the intersection of these images of dissent, waste, and beauty will encourage each viewer to take ‘a longer view’ and consider their impact on the environment— I am trying to do the same. Perhaps together we can begin to reject the devastating environmental shortsightedness that has been the hallmark of human expansion in the modern age. – D. Randall Blythe” The opening reception and artist’s talk are FREE- however, if you are planning to attend, please RSVP at: WWW.LEICAGALLERYBOSTON/EVENTS/. The photographs (all in editions of 10) will be available for sale, framed or just as prints, and umm... those are NOT free. Printing is being done by the amazing @digitalsilverimaging in Boston, who handled my last show– their work is EXQUISITE and of the highest quality. Thanks to @leicacamerausa and @leicagalleryboston for all the support! The Gallery is located at: 74 Arlington St, Boston, MA 02116. See y’all in September in Beantown! #Leica #LeicaCameraUsa #LeicaGalleryBoston #ALongerView #DRandallBlythe

Blythe berharap pamerannya dapat menghadirkan pesan politik di foto-fotonya tapi juga efek permanen bagi para pengunjung, bahkan mengubah mereka agar bisa lebih sadar lingkungan.

“Saya berharap persimpangan antara imej perlawanan, sampah dan keindahan akan mendorong pengunjung untuk melihat jauh ke depan dan memertimbangkan dampak kehidupan mereka bagi lingkungan, saya pun akan berusaha begitu.”

“Mungkin bersama-sama kita mulai bisa mengikis efek penghancuran lingkungan hidup dari kurangnya perencanaan jangka panjang, suatu ciri khas ekspansi manusia di era modern,” pungkas Blythe.
