About Jim Baab

Somerville, MA

Somerville, MA artist Jim Baab photographs everyday objects, scenes, and the human form, with an eye for light, line, and illusion. His figurative, food, and Instagram images have been published and chosen for national and international group exhibitions in the US and Europe; and, three illusions that he created during "Human Landscape" photography workshops taught by Karin Rosenthal secured Jim a 'Gold Artist' award from ArtAscent, an art and literature magazine.

Some of his experimental photography utilizes an in-camera "reflection" effect to trigger pareidolia, the tendency to interpret a vague stimulus as something known to the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds or faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns. It's like working with a live, handheld, Rorschach Test ink blot!

The results of Jim's experiments with pareidolia are true visions from his mind's eye; yet, some of them can be reinterpreted by the viewer who may see additional things within each frame, based on their own experiences.
