“Short-Wave Blues (2018 - ongoing)”
Short-Wave Blues is a project inspired by oceanic radiation and acidification, the overall affects of climate change, pollution and the human detritus that influences the quality of aquatic ecosystems. The images are shot with a combination of ultra-violet and full spectrum light in studio.
More about Danielle Ezzo:
“I’m interested in new approaches to photography and image-making; the shortcomings of medium; slippages between innovation and understanding. For me, my work is most successful when it creates a new visual taxonomy for looking through the post-photographic lens. I prey on the natural friction between the photograph and veracity to achieve this.
My work has been written about in the Boston Globe, Tate, BKN Magazine, and Lenscratch and exhibited internationally at such galleries as IRL Gallery (OH), Dose Projects (NY), A.C. Institute (NY), Daniel Cooney Fine Art (NY), The Santa Barbara Museum of Art, The Far Eastern Museum of Art (Russia). I've lectured at the academic conference HISTART’14 (Istanbul), Carrot Creative, and IFP Media Center about new digital workflows, on a panel about the future of photography at Eyebeam, and is published in The New Inquiry.”
Danielle is a MFA graduate of Lesley University College of Art & Design (LUCAD). She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
