Joshua Meier: The Parables (and other impossible events)
Missoula Art Museum
June 4 – September 19, 2010

“The power of the parable lies in its ability to speak directly about our reality while existing completely outside of that reality,” states photographer Joshua Meier about his new exhibition of photographs at the Missoula Art Museum. A traditional parable is a succinct story, fictitious in nature and with a moral or religious lesson that touches on a universal truth. Meier carefully and meticulously stages models and props to create his photographs of visual parables.
