In the film and photographic series Pine Flat constructed over a three year period, Sharon Lockhart addresses the experience of an American childhood, using the stunning landscape of America's Sierra Nevada Mountains to bring home the close relationships of children with their natural surroundings. Lockhart began by constructing a portrait studio in a small rural community, and extending an open invitation to local children, and then by immersing herself in their environment and noting the complexity of their interactions. Her highly descriptive, almost painterly portraits, taken over the course of several years, abjure narration for the pleasure of the gaze and the notion of temporality. The studio remains a constant, its black backdrop, cement floor and natural lighting; a theatrical setting that allows the children to develop a different kind of relationship to the camera. Those stills stand in stark contrast to the pictorialism of a series showing the community's majestic natural surroundings, and to the portraits on 16mm film that accompany them, which are both literally and figuratively moving.

Published by Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Essays by Norman Bryson, Dominic Molon.
Sharon Lockhart's photographs and films frame the quiet moments and details of everyday life, exploring the subtle relationships between photography and cinema. Much of her photographic work over the past six years has relied on the staging of scenes characteristic of filmmaking; her work has also treated issues of time, sequence and narrative in a style reminiscent of Conceptual art. Lockhart's films emphasize the photographic basis of the moving image, often using a fixed perspective to capture unexpected movements and human reactions in a given situation. This catalogue documents the largest and most significant solo exhibition of Lockhart's work in an American museum to date, and focuses on Lockhart's photographic and cinematic work since 1994, including her major film projects Goshogaoka (1997) and Teatro Amazonas (1999). Also featured are essays by curator Dominic Molon and art historian Norman Bryson, focusing on Lockhart's rereading of conceptual photography, and her complex approach to narrative and the gaze.
