ROSEGALLERY is pleased to present Sequential Views, a selection of works by Jo Ann Callis, John Chiara, William Eggleston, Elger Esser, Robbert Flick and Rinko Kawauchi for Paris Photo 2018.
Sequential Views refers to the title of a body of work by Robbert Flick from the 1980s, wherein the artist created a chronology of street and seascapes, sequencing them together into fragmented yet encompassing perspectives. The celebrated artists on view each work with a guided vision, carefully collecting narratives, whether conceptually connected or visually tied.
A selection of never-before-seen photographs by Jo Ann Callis from the 1970s will be on view, exhibiting Callis’ playfulness and poignancy. Along with this selection of prints, ROSEGALLERY presents an installation of vintage contact sheets from Callis’ celebrated early color work, opening a glimpse into the artist’s creative process.
From Budapest to Mississippi to Manhattan, John Chiara travels with his hand-built, large scale camera, creating unique works with the photographic process in focus. His approach is distinguished by its incredible physicality and recalls the early days of the medium when artists dealt with heavy, awkward equipment and endured long exposure and development times.
In Elger Esser’s most recent body of work, Paysages Intimes, the artist turns intimate exposures into luminous landscapes. In a departure from his well-known, large-scale landscape photographs, Esser produced this series of landscapes on small sheets of silver-coated copper plates.
Known as the godfather of color photography, William Eggleston revolutionized the medium. In sequence, Eggleston’s seemingly inconsequential moments transformed the perception and possibilities of fine-art photography. In 1976, Eggleston held the groundbreaking exhibition “Color Photographs” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in 2018 Eggleston: Los Alamos held critical acclaim at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
