Interim Thoughts, and Others consists of four series by American photographer Bill Jacobson from the past fifteen years. From the early 1990s Jacobson makes his name with his out-of-focus, painterly images that address themes of loss, mortality and spirituality. After having worked in the 1980s as a commercial photographer for the New York art scene, he returns to his own image-making at the end of the decade. His series entitled Interim Portraits (1992-1994) is a personal reflection on life in the AIDS era. Fragile figures seem to disappear into a white field, as if extricating themselves from a mortal coil. Then follows his Thought Series (1996-1998), a series of dark monochromes that continues to address the notion of the body as something both still and constantly changing. In 1999, after returning from a trip to India, Jacobson begins working in colour on the streets of his hometown, New York. The Untitled images (2000-2001) in the exhibition present the city in an impressionistic manner, as a commentary on the fleetingness of life, at the same time playing on the status of photography as collective memory. With funny, cry, happy (2004-2006) Jacobson for the first time distances himself from his out-of-focus manner of photographing. In colourful pictures he elicits emotion and melancholy from images and objects that often go unnoticed, although they are inextricably connected with our daily life.
