i am a big fan of photography, but rarely does it make me gasp the way a painting does. i had one of those moments when i saw chris anthony’s victims & avengers series. the concept, composition, light, and color—all stunning! specific favorites include emily #3, zooey #2, and max. be sure to check out the rest of his work if you aren’t familiar with it—the new venice* series, which opened at the corey helford gallery last march, is both shocking and serene.
*venice is a metaphor for a sinking city, deserving of nature’s wrath, leaving its citizens to tread water and explore new ways to sustain life
on aquatic earth.
