David Benjamin Sherry
Climate Vortex Sutra presents color-manipulated film negatives of landscapes in order to discuss the humans’ distortive impact on geography and our changing physical world. On the images, most of the sci-fi, futuristic tones are achieved by using analogue techniques in the darkroom. The photographs are meant to raise the critical concern of our relationship with the rate of the climate change. Along with landscapes, Sherry also photographs the personal territories of the human body. He uses this as a representation of a reverse landscape as a documentation of our adapting skins to the impact of the changing surroundings. The prints are large in scale and mesmerizing.
David Benjamin Sherry’s Climate Vortex Sutra is on view at Salon 94 Bowery through October 25th.
