For Paris Photo New York, Bruce Silverstein Gallery will present an exhibition focused on the history of photography and its influence on today’s image makers. The booth will feature works by contemporary artists as well as the masters of photography, exploring the changing landscape from the 19th Century to today. Mishka Henner describes his newest project, Solar, as “representing an interface between industry and the heavens.” Nicolai Howalt references the history of photographic production and the oldest living organism in his newest book “Old Tjikko”. Rosalind Fox Solomon’s approach to building a narrative is to introduce images in conversation by grouping similarities rather than exposing differences. Continuing with this theme, Marjan Teeuwen transforms dilapidated, once forgotten spaces; employing a local crew from her site-specific installations, the teamwork aspect of her projects allows the photographs to transcend photography and become human in their nature.
