A Beautiful Sadness

A reviewer once described Austin Granger’s photographs as possessing a “beautiful sadness”–a description which makes him happy. “I want my pictures to make people feel,” Granger says, “I want them to express, through the things of the world, universal human conditions. I want to meet my viewer in the middle. What’s it all for, if not that?

“The subject matter in this exhibit is wide-ranging, but the pictures are all of one piece,” notes Granger. “They are all about more than what they show. At least, that’s the way I think of it. I’m interested in whether or not a subject can carry the weight of an emotion or an idea, even if on the surface that subject is not explicitly related to that emotion or idea.
