Dave Chance sees a photograph as an encounter rather than an illustration. He aims to capture a subject the moment he sees it. “Ode to Patina” is a series of photographs of plaster walls in Italy that reveal a fluid relationship between light, form, material, craft, the effects of time & the patina that develops at the hand of people. Existence is temporal, fleeting & constantly changing. Essence is fixed. “Ode to Patina” is a revelation of the beauty of intersections between existence & essence, permanence & change.
