Replaced.

Photography

Unfortunately, these jpegs don’t do justice the physical presence of Marco Breuer’s works currently at Yossi Milo Gallery. Large, aggressive and featuring prominent gestures that are usually associated with abstract painting, these large photographs challenge every notion of what constitutes a modern image.

As the idea that everyone is a photographer (thanks, iPhones) spreads and photographs become merely images that are viewed on a screen, (talking about you, instagram) is it not wonderful to see the photograph reduced back to its most primal form? The Photograph as object, as evidence of a single event; created through the chemical reaction generated from destruction of a photo paper that is slowly becoming archaic.

Like this work? You might like Chris McCaw’s Sunburn series too.
