Tonight - Joachim Brohm @ Luisotti
Gallery Luisotti would like to remind everyone of Joachim Brohm's first solo show at the gallery, Ohio, opening this week. This body of work cemented the artist's place within the then nascent group of young German photographers investigating color photography as a serious field of practice. Ohio is a case study of a then relatively new practice of using color photography to fully depict the environment around us, which in the works' chromatic range furthers the documentary expanse of the depicted landscape. The objective coolness in these pictures renders color as an elemental form, one serving to further accentuate the contours of the scene. Brohm's Ohio is a place of bleached house paints, washed bricks, and faint neon signs - color of a distant fragment of time.
Please join us for the artist's reception on Thursday, May 19th from 6:00 to 8:00pm. Joachim will be signing copies of the book Ohio which was recently published by Steidl. For further information please visit our website here or feel free to call the gallery at (310) 453-0043.
