Couple of Shows
I’ve been a lil’ out of the loop lately…might check out these shows and see what other goodies I find along the way:
Crash (John Matos)
January 17 – February 21, 2009
The Last Days of W.
January 20 – March 7
I’m definitely interested in checking out Soth’s Photographs in person. His words are what drew me in:
Henri Cartier-Bresson famously said, “The world is going to pieces and people like Adams and Weston are photographing rocks.” But I don’t think the world would have been a better place if these photographers had headed off to a war zone. The question is whether you can be a political photographer while you photograph rocks. My pictures don’t have a specific social commentary but I think they have social and political meaning.
I can spend hours looking at the images on his site…though they come from different places they’re all plowing towards the same direction which is something I can appreciate.
