Art Photo Index Launches Fine Art Photographers Collection

Photo Eye Gallery Invites Contemporary Fine Art Photographers Steve Giovinco, Martin Parr, Brian Ulrich Others

Its great to have my fine art photographs included in the Art Photo Index, an index of important art and documentary photographers.  Art Photo Index (API) is a collection of vetted art and documentary photographers and their work and is a great resource for curators, gallery directors, publishers, editors, picture researchers, and collectors. It is organized by photo-eye, the established Santa Fe publisher and photography gallery.

Paola Ferrario’s photographs at Rick Wester Fine Art might be disguised as snapshots documenting the undramatic.

They are composed of views that we wouldn’t normally “see” while passing by–detritus tossed aside; trees morphing through fences; wood and tile floors; objects, signs, things.

All are carefully observed but not surgically distilled into a neat, clear conclusion, and that’s what makes them intriguing.  There is a point where some of the images, however, morph from a thing into an abstraction, and both exist simultaneously, and these are the most interesting for me.   All the photographs are part of  series of two to many (dozens?) grouped together.  Likable too are the lack of frames around the work allowing the photographs to became much more accessible pinned to the wall.

Full disclosure: I attended Yale University’s MFA Photography program with Paola.
