Photography | Edwynn Houk Gallery, Zurich, Switzerland | Thursday 7 November 2013 - Saturday 11 January 2014
From the soft focus, more pictoralist style synonymous with his predecessors, Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen, the oeuvre of Edward Weston marks the medium’s shift to the straight photograph, of images rendered in crisp detail and sharp focus. His subject matter was varied and far reaching: nudes, multiple landscapes, portraits, still lifes, as illustrated by the prints on view. Included are early nudes, exquisitely composed, of Tina Modotti and Margrethe Mather, and multifarious and indefatigable studies of everyday, commonplace objects like "Excusado," 1925, and "Kale Halved," 1930.
Photography | CWC Gallery, Berlin, Germany | Saturday 31 August 2013 - Saturday 16 November 2013
It rests only upon the most creative representatives of contemporary art to turn externally restricted image spaces into gigantic stages, to fill them with illusions and fantastic scenery and to allow the recipient a moment of sublime experience. This ability lies not only in an extraordinary understanding of the art form – it also demands perfect devotion for the characteristic aesthetic language from the artist. Because of their complexity the works are breathtaking at first sight and with deeper intrusion once irritating, often visionary and always fascinating.
