Henry Wessel :: ‘New Topographics’ (Photography)

::

“You’re suddenly seeing the coherence and interconnectedness of everything, left to right, bottom to top, front to back. It’s all connected, and somehow, it’s all in balance. And that’s, when you go ‘Yes!’” H Wessel

Henry Wessel first gained recognition in the 1970s as part of the New Topographics, a group of photographers who challenged the conventions of documentary and landscape photography, capturing instead the poetry of seemingly mundane scenes and subjects—traffic lights, advertisements, empty landscapes, and suburbia. During the 1970s he moved to San Francisco from New York after falling in love with the brilliant quality of light in California. There, in both black-and-white and color film, he photographed the vernacular architecture and social landscape of his surroundings, in prints with long shadows and rich tonal variations… [Extract]

“Knowing that she was about to die, my aunt said that she would have less regret about leaving this world if she knew that she would still be able to send letters. I feel that my camera acts as an antenna – to receive signals carrying urgent messages from the lost lives and objects that fill the air all around us. I also believe that it is this frantic whispering of death that pushes me to take these photographs, and enables me to continue living…”  – Akiko Takizawa : Artist Statement
