New Pier 24 Photography publication!
We are excited to present our newest exhibition catalog featuring 137 selected photographs that were presented at Pier 24 Photography within the exhibition A Sense of Place. Included in this exhibition catalog are two original essays by leading scholars on photography, and an conversation between Paul Graham, Stephen Shore, and Pier 24 Photography Director, Chris McCall.
For its fifth exhibition, Pier 24 Photography presents A Sense of Place, an exploration of how photographs shape the perception of our environments. Together, the exhibited works shift in scale from room size installations to small, quiet photographs, transporting the viewer through a variety of locations, memories, and emotive experiences.
Taken as a whole, the pictures assembled in A Sense of Place demonstrate what photography does best, drawing our attention to the everyday—and what we might otherwise bypass—and inspiring us to take another, closer look at our surroundings. With over 50 photographers and 400 works represented in A Sense of Place, the exhibition takes a close look at photographers such as Robert Adams, Doug Aitken, Uta Barth, Erik William Carroll, John Chiara, Moyra Davey, Thomas Demand, Lee Friedlander, Paul Graham, Andreas Gursky, Todd Hido, Rinko Kawauchi, Erik Kessels, Asako Narahashi, Stephen Shore, Jeff Wall, plus many more.
