Rosier Gallery is pleased to present our inaugural “Extraordinary Photographs” exhibition featuring striking work from both the world’s leading contemporary photographers and several of the gallery’s primary artists from January 10 through March 3, 2008.
Among the highlights of the exhibition is Alec Soth’s “Sugar’s, Davenport, Iowa”, the artist’s acclaimed photograph from his “Sleeping by the Mississippi” series. A unique, spectacular “Baby” image from Adam Fuss will be included, as well as one of Diane Arbus’ signature photographs, “Young waitress at a nudist camp, N.J.” printed by Neil Selkirk after Diane Arbus’ suicide in 1971. Also on view will be Massimo Vitali’s “Bari”, an iconic illustration of Vitali's repeated depiction of people at play juxtaposed with business and industrial activity. The show also includes wonderful images from Julie Blackmon, Dinh Q. Lê, Loretta Lux, Matthew Pillsbury and Thomas Wrede.
“Extraordinary Photographs” additionally features selected works from recent Rosier Gallery exhibitions:
Chris Faust’s “Nocturnes” depict a sometimes hidden and often disappearing traditional Midwestern landscape with his unique night photographs. Captured with only ambient light, these panoramic images beautifully illuminate subtle tone gradations and textures.
Matthew Monteith’s “Czech Eden” conveys both wonder and loneliness, not as a reflection of Czechoslovakia, but rather the artist's experience as an outsider in a country replete with contractions and an uncertain future. With their restraint, brilliant color, and thoughtful attention to the uncanny within the everyday, Monteith's photographs parallel a venerable tradition of Stephen Shore, Joel Sternfeld and most recently Alec Soth.
Brian Lesteberg’s “Raised to Hunt” is an intimate portrait of the people, places and accoutrements within the annual hunting ritual of rural North Dakota. These formally beautiful quiet photographs perfectly capture the understated emotion of a community and familiar activity within the broad American heartland.
Marc Asnin’s "Uncle Charlie" is a twenty-five year visual diary of dramatic intimacy and intensity that chronicles isolation, dependency, conflict, and death afflicting a mentally ill, impoverished man and his wives, girlfriends and children.
