I'm Like a Pretty Girl - I Can Go Anywhere: The Photographic Range of Brian Anderson
Opening reception and gallery talk Friday, August 2, 6-9pm
Gasoline Gallery, 2493 Broad Avenue
On view by appointment through Wednesday, August 7
This is the third of a sixteen-party exhibition series curated by Jason Miller entitled Circuitous Succession.
According to the event's Facebook page, Brian Anderson is an amazingly diverse photographer who travels the country and, especially, the southern region that encompasses Memphis, Tennessee. Brian photographs everything from high profile political events to intimate rave parties. His ability to discover light and use it effectively makes his landscape photography an intricate component to his dynamic range. There are subtle notes of prominent photographic influences in his work that include Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Elliott Erwitt and Diane Arbus to name a few. Miller's selections as curator entail a hint of the strange blended with aspects of the mundane and understated natural beauty found in landscape - all with the point-blank photojournalistic aggression of Weegee's New York style and Robert Capa's up-close-and-personal approach.
Miller sifted through over 13,000 images to narrow his selection to 50. It is important to Miller to have a computer present for viewers to get a taste of Anderson's extensive range.
