Impermanence is an ongoing series depicting deteriorating buildings of northern California, the place I call home. Throughout my youth I retained a personal connection to old buildings of this kind, often playing in or around them. Laced with memories, both personal and mysterious, these places have come to represent a relationship between the present and the eternal. Metaphorically, they identify interactions between man and nature, between the known and the unknown and between beauty and truth, to name only a few. I am interested in the synergy between dualities of this sort and the falsifications of the human idea of permanence. Using the camera as an instrument that can both illuminate and disarm the fragile veil between reality and deception. The meaning of the collection is to invoke, with ease and openness, the most fundamental of all things: all that is here shall some day disappear.

  • Grey Crawford. Chroma, 1978–85, Vol 1
    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International
    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
  • Georg Kussmann: FRG
    Publication
    MACK
    International
    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
