Jed Fielding Photography City of Secrets: Photographs of Naples by Jed Fielding


A strange light inhabits the photographs of Jed Fielding, a pale gray that one associates with place.  It has the cool texture of marble.  It preserves a certain formality, even if the camera lens allows little personal space.  It has a hallowing glow as it lights his subjects, denizens of the mean streets of Naples, with indigent pride.  It gilds their disenfranchisement, their dispossession in the ghetto, with a strong sense of energy, tribal power, physicality, self-possession.  Even if the accouterments of life in Naples are spartan, the light is triumphantly not.  Elegant, voluptuous, vibrant, it registers joy in life as Fielding photographs limbs, faces, gestures, the bold stare of infants, the withered faces of age, the laughter of children.
