A graduate of Yale’s photography MFA program, artist David Benjamin Sherry is best known for his vivid use of color, in portraits, abstraction, and nature photographs drenched in rich hues. Working with analog photography, Sherry explores the power and emotion of color itself as much as he does the subjects of his works, manipulating his images through a laborious and careful darkroom process. To create a series of epic monochromatic photographs of the American West, Sherry used a large-format camera and drew inspiration from Group f/64, a collective of photographers that included Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. Although engaged in their tradition, Sherry has said that he hopes to “inject a more queer and colorful vision of American Western photography,” altering how we experience landscape through his inventive and futuristic use of tone and scale.
