Paul Jeremias’ photographs come out of his interest in the correspondence between common places and theatrical stages.

“In 1980 I began photographing architectural interiors such as lobbies and small private rooms in colour for their contrasting natural and illusory perspectives. The former was provided by the architectural setting, the latter by paintings and photomurals.

“Some of the photographs included are from a recent body of work that I started last summer while visiting agricultural fairs and festivals of Western Canada. Fairs, like circuses, are theatre against a natural as well as artificial backdrop.”

– Paul Jeremias, 1983
