Throughout his photographic career, Jacobson has used his camera to navigate through life and bring a sense of order to an increasingly chaotic world. Melting Point is an emotional and visionary journey through times of personal tragedy and global discord. By capturing the ephemeral, fleeting images that elude the consciousness of most of us, Jacobson has constructed intimate visual anomalies which suggest transformation and transcendence. A dog in a New York City stairwell becomes a radiant chimera. An enormous, watchful eye hovers over the city of Shanghai at night. Apparitions appear at fairgrounds, on the streets and on the beach, as if messengers, sent to warn or comfort us. In Jacobson’s poetic images, foreboding and trepidation pave the path to hope and revelation.
