off peak Kerri Jamison

For off peak, I found myself searching for magic and longing for innocence in the Wisconsin Dells: a place I had always dreamed of visiting—as every child growing up in the Midwest does.
The result is a collection of photographs made during five trips over two years, all in the off-peak season. Their mood reflects the introspective struggle I feel (during these complicated political times) between longing for an escape back to innocence, magic, and childlike wonder; and accepting the responsibilities and realities that experience and knowledge bring. In the end, I found room for magic in a place off peak.

A exhibition of her work opens July 17 at the Minnesota Center for Photography.
