A Moment Away
M Contemporary Art
205 E. 9 Mile, Ferndale

M Contemporary Art is pleased to present A Moment Away, a new collection of landscape photographs by Brian Day, whom many know for his famed series Detroit from Above. A Moment Away uses color to convey Day's feelings through the process of making these images. Stepping away from the cacophony of the everyday, the “where” doesn’t matter — only that there is space to reflect. In this series, Day provides the viewer a place to do as much. In much of his work, he engages the viewer in constant action — conversely, in A Moment Away, Day explores those moments when we are alone, sharing images imbued with a sense of quiet, letting the viewer participate in the artist's own reflections.
