Jason Falchook is a Brooklyn based photographer and a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art and Design. His photographs examine how we organize, live with and experience the built environment. His work is in the permanent collections of the National Academy of Sciences, the US State Department and numerous private collections. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
“I’m interested in photographing places that have been transformed not only by the passing of time and the continuos shifting of light and shadow, but also by the cumulative layering and overlapping of building styles, economic policies and political agendas. My images are less about passing judgement on these sites and more about observation. The camera allows me to engage with my environment. Careful consideration and looking have challenged me to be more present and aware of my immediate surroundings. I try to interact with what has become too familiar as I move through these spaces. My images try to re-frame and isolate aspects of an already existing network. We are framed and hemmed by the design and maintenance of cities and neighborhoods, often by forces and realities beyond our control. I take these photographs as a way to center myself and try to make sense of the landscape.”
