The one above it is one of my favorites. I saw the show during the delicious Aperture Armory Week Brunch March 6 , 2010. This type of photography series called Black Angry Snake which unfortunately, you have to see in person to really appreciate its beauty. The Internet does not do any justice to it at all. So, go and see it and see you @ Aperture, March 11, 2010.

I will be there!

Angry Black Snake

Photographs by Michael Corridore

Aperture Foundation is a non-profit arts institution dedicated to promoting photography in all its forms, and as part of our ongoing mission to support the work of emerging photographers, Aperture is presenting an exhibition featuring the work of Australian photographer Michael Corridore, winner of the 2008 Aperture Portfolio Prize, in our project space (adjacent to the main gallery). Part of a new initiative, these large prints are available for sale, with the proceeds benefiting both the artist and Aperture Foundation.

In the words of Aperture book publisher Lesley A. Martin, "Corridore's project, Angry Black Snake, is an exercise in minimalism. Each image has been pared down to the barest of elements—urgent gestures and barely traceable figures cloaked in smoke and dust. Yet each image pulses with palpable emotional tension, telegraphed by these barest of representational sketches and the subtle shifting colors of the clouds that descend upon each scene like a flimsy curtain."

Please join Aperture on Thursday, March 11 from 6:00-8:00pm for an intimate artist reception.
