Photographer J. Henry Fair

I have always admired photographer J. Henry Fair, his work is both beautiful and sad at the same time. Fair photographs environmental hazards, containment sites, global disasters, and they look amazing. If you’re not familiar with his work, take a look at these Dirty Pretty Things.

Ryan McGinley at Team Gallery

Another great show tonight.

Ryan McGinley
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
18 March – 17 April 2010

Team Gallery 83 Grand Street NY NY 10013
Team is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by the New York-based photographer Ryan McGinley. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere will run from the 18th of March through the 17th of April 2010. Team Gallery is located at 83 Grand Street, cross streets Wooster and Greene, on the ground floor.

For his latest exhibition, Ryan McGinley has shifted his focus away from constructing a youthful sublime within the boundless American landscape and has concentrated instead on creating imagery within the confines of his New York studio. The result is a surprisingly restrained, open-ended study of black and white portraiture. Here we see McGinley not as a chronicler of youthful adventure, but as an engine for an almost scientific cataloging of a kind of emotional optimism.
