Creating Space by Bart Patitucci


August 5-31, 2023
Opening Reception Sunday, August 6, 2023 6-8pm

A collection of experimental film photography & poetry by Maui's Bart Patitucci.
Prints available for purchase, 100% of the profits will be donated for Maui.

As Maui grieves, recovery & rebuilding will be a long process. 10 of the 13 images in my CREATING SPACE collection were shot 10 minutes outside of Lahaina. Often after photographing the sunrise & moonset, I would drive to Lahaina, park under the banyan tree and surf my favorite wave, Breakwall. My memories are nothing compared to what people have lost.  I will be donating 100% of the profits from my current show at Treehouse. I know too many families & individuals who have lost everything and I want to help as many people as I can.
Thank you for your support,
Bart Patitucci


Project statement:

“CREATING SPACE” is an experimental film photography collection of moonscapes & poetry. The 13 images  were shot on 35mm film and created by exposing multiple moments onto one frame of film. Creating in-camera double exposures have been one of my favorite things to try when shooting a roll of film because you never really know how or if the final image will turn out.  Through years of experimenting, countless failures, luck, and trust of the mixing of two scenes, this collection is the result of 18 months double exposing the moon and landscape onto a single frame of film.
