IE Weekly's Ingrid Reeve Writes About John Divola: As Far as I Could Get

"Witness to the Sublime: John Divola's evocative photographs visit Claremont" by Ingrid Reeve, IE Weekly

Situated serenely within the picturesque grounds of the Pomona College Art Museum is a vibrant exhibit by photographer John Divola. The 15 photographs in “John Divola: As Far as I Could Get,” framed in white, are incredibly luminous, like HD T.V., yet they were masterfully created in 1977 and 1978. The resounding theme is that of an ocean view through a window, giving the viewer a distinct space to occupy within an abandoned home on Zuma Beach in Malibu, California. In this series, titled Zuma, Divola challenges the notion of photographer as witness.
