Photography is Hard
August 7 - September 25, 2021
Daniel Faria Gallery is pleased to present Photography is Hard, featuring works by Steven Beckly, Nadia Belerique, Shannon Bool, Chris Curreri and Elizabeth Zvonar.
This exhibition brings together works that bear evidence of their making: a photograph is rephotographed, a camera part ends up in the frame, a subject is illuminated by an artificial flash, collaged images reveal their artifice through their construction. But in an exhibition that is seemingly about the mechanics of a medium, the body presses in. The body haunts. In the works on view, bodies merge with their surroundings: the studio, public architecture, domestic interiors. Sometimes fleshy and sometimes devoid of flesh entirely, they are reflections and shadows and outlines, and they are also devices through which to see other things.
