From the press release:
The Searchers is a series of large-scale photographs examining Western spiritual tourism in India.
(How very L.A.)
With The Searchers, the artists build on themes explored in their previous bodies of work, specifically Expats and Natives (Bezzubov and Sucher) and The Gringo Project (Bezzubov). These previous projects center around young Western travelers exploring developing countries and how the relationship to one’s host country relates to larger issues of race, class, and identity.
As a former expat myself, I'm curious. I'm also curious to see how two photographers make one photo. Does one focus and the other press the shutter?
November 1 – December 20, 2008
OPENING RECEPTION : Saturday November 1, 2008, 6pm - 8pm @ Taylor de Cordoba
PS. This is a perfect example of a gallery being careless and publishing too big of an image online. That second one would make for a nice wallpaper. I'm just saying...
