Artist Reception: ‘Insomnia’ Photos by Jon Dayton, including work by Elliot Dayton

June 20 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On display June 5- Sept 28th, 2024

Artist Statement:


This is a dream you half remember about not being able to sleep. Or a one act play that a friend saw and told you about. Or three quarters of a comic book you found at a laundromat.
The special effects were all done in camera and the shots only edited for things like color and exposure. The actors are childhood best friends. The photographer usually shoots nature and wildlife but also went to school for theatre and gets weird ideas sometimes.
Jon Dayton came from a performing arts background, starting at SUNY Purchase in the theatre department and finishing in the music production program. From there he went on to serve the Western New York area as a sound engineer for events of every type and size. Translating the lessons learned in thirty years of helping to present others’ art, moving into photography is a further exploration of what can be captured in a moment and what subtleties can be accentuated or hidden to enhance the meaning.
