This particular sequence is constructed from numerous different series of ‘FotoWorks’ by Fernando. Therefore, I would encourage anyone who is intrigued by these marvelous works to click on each individual image to view texts & tags. This will resignify the speech of each image and each series, allowing for a better understanding of context and a further appreciation of the artists original intent.

Driven by her sequestered, private motivations, Vivian Maier captured our cities, suburbs and rural towns. A nanny for many years, herself childless, Maier revealed the beauties and complexities of domesticity. Her photographs demonstrate an intimate exploration of family life, as well as seemingly allegorical treatments of “home”—a space sometimes idyllic and whole, and sometimes troubled—as in her photographs of homes destroyed by tornadoes or street riots. In this present collection, we witness her sophisticated, expansive approach to setting and subject matter both intimate and grand.

The photographic subjects range from Salvador Dali to Nixon; from poignant self-portraits to photos of the unnamed on the street. She documented the exhilaration of Macy’s parades, along with the quiet of cemeteries, scenes of road kill, the life of flowers and her worldwide travels. In addition to Europe and the United States, those travels included places as diverse as Egypt, Malaysia, the Philippines and more. Through surveying her selection of deeply varied subject matter, we are allowed an intimate view of Vivian Maier, obscure photographer extraordinaire. [Extract : Vivian Maier – The Story]

In Imasaka’s photographic investigation of urban space in New York and Chicago, he has found a unique perspective on the tall buildings that create these cities skylines. Shooting straight up between adjacent tall buildings towards the sky, he creates a narrow vista, like a long tunnel, that ends in open sky; up and down are reversed and the viewer feels as if he were standing over a bottomless abyss. The view is unsettling and generates a sense of vertigo. His impressive large-scale black and white prints monumentalize that uneasy loss of equilibrium. [extract : chelsea west gallery]
