Virtual Opening Celebration Video

I’m thrilled to be part of this exhibition, organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and slated to travel to several museums in the US in 2021.

Element 
Yoffy Press
Available for preorder now

Element features Matthew Brandt, Chris McCaw and Meghann Riepenhoff. Allowing natural elements to inform and influence the image, these artists move beyond the camera to explore the relationship between the image and the environment. In response to our work, Jon Mooallem writes, “We are living in a moment when the kind of rigid and meticulous order-making that I’ve always fallen back on has started to feel quixotic and futile, or even destructive sometimes—when it seems necessary to pick apart the rules and conventions we take for granted and evaluate which ones are elemental and which are merely habit. I’ll be here: listening and thinking through all of it, shaking my fist, relearning how to speak.”

Photography to the Test of Abstraction
On View at Three Venues in France
September 12 – December 6, 2020

I will have work on view in Photography to the Test of Abstraction, presented from September 12 – December 6, 2020 at three simultaneous venues across France: FRAC Normandie Rouen, in Rouen; Micro-Onde, Centre d’art contemporain de l’Onde, in Vélizy-Villacoublay; and Centre Photographie D’Île-De-France, in Pontault-Combault. This comprehensive survey exhibition catalogs the diversity of approaches found in contemporary non-figurative photography.

The Climate Emergency in 50 Rounds
Fotobokfestival Oslo
Oslo, Norway
September 10 – 20

The Climate Emergency in 50 Rounds, curated by artist Ethan Rafal, is the main exhibition at Fotobokfestival Oslo 2020. The exhibition contains works made by 50 photo book artists and artist collectives whose work urgently responds to the climate crisis. 

My monograph Littoral Drift + Ecotone will be on view alongside a Chronograph, an exhibition-specific accordion book with one page for each day of the festival, ten in total. Each day, staff will turn the book to a new page, which commences exposure to sunlight and the elements. The book will be cumulative record of weather, light, and time.

Online
November 12, 5-6pm

Curated by Allison Ralio, Image + Object is an exhibition that explores alternative process photography through the unique photographic works of four Bay Area contemporary photographers, each of whom challenges our notions of photography as reflection, documentation and separation. I’m exhibiting a Tidal Chart, which changes each day of the exhibition in response to the high and low tides of Half Moon Bay, CA.

Keeper of the Hearth
Houston Center for Photography
Houston, TX
September 10 – January 10, 2021

Odette England put together a compelling response to Roland Barthes’ Camera Lucida, arguably one of the most influential books about photography, consisting of a book and an exhibition. I’m happy to have my work included in the project. My contribution, For Anna Vol I is a fugitive lumigram that I began exposing on Atkin’s birthday in 2015. 

David Campany, Jess T. Dugan, Kris Graves, and Sarah Meister were panelists for the virtual opening, and the book includes essays by Douglas Nickel, Andrea V. Rosenthal Professor of History of Art and Architecture, Brown University; Lucy Gallun, Associate Curator, Department of Photography, the Museum of Modern Art; and Phillip Prodger, Senior Research Scholar, Yale Center for British Art. Foreword by Charlotte Cotton, independent curator and writer.

New Territory: Landscape Photography Today
June 24-September 18

New Territory: Landscape Photography Today is a survey of contemporary landscape photography from around the world. The exhibition will explore how artists stretch the boundaries of traditional landscape photography to reflect the environmental attitudes, perceptions, and values of our time. The exhibition challenges us to see photography differently, and contemplate our complex relationship with the landscape.

The Wall Street Journal featured the exhibition and my work, alongside inspired work by some of my favorite contemporary photographers.
