Upcoming Show at Victoria & Albert Museum, London
A big, highly anticipated show of nonobjective photography entitled "Shadow Catchers" opens at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London this fall. Curated by Martin Barnes, it includes work by some of the better-known lensless (or nearly lensless) figures of the past few decades: Pierre Cordier, Adam Fuss, Susan Derges, Garry Fabian Miller, and Floris Neusüss. So if you're anywhere near London between October 13 and February 20, 2011, be sure to drop in. We don't know if this work will be in the show, but here's one we like, by Garry Fabian Miller, the British artist who has done a lot of work with dye destruction techniques. It's called "Year One - Samonlos 1", from 2006.
