Russian-born photographer Ilya Askinazi and his mother emigrated from Moscow, Russia in 1980 for the possibility of a new life in New York City. Askinazi’s passion for photography was ingrained at an early age through his studies with Russian photographer Israel Goldberg. In 1984 he moved to Maine, where he continues to find inspiration for his photography.

The selection of works in A Pointed View represents a small portion of over 2,000 images he has created in recent years. These black and white photographs were taken using a Deardorff 8 x 10 view camera and are contact prints from the large negatives. The exhibition features images from the artist’s recent trip to Israel as well New York City and locations throughout Maine.

The subjects include the figure, landscapes and the urban environment. Askinazi possesses an innate ability to hone in on the most unique aspects of his chosen subjects — seeing beautiful abstract moments in nature and depicting the seductive qualities of light. Images of interior spaces are imbued with a psychological intensity; street scenes and store fronts convey a range of shifting moods, and landscapes reflect the ever-changing atmospheric conditions of the natural world.
