The Other at 511 GalleryFebruary 14, 2013
Written & Photographed by Brian Bunting
The Other is an exhibition of color photographs by contemporary artists who examine the human subject - sometimes in portraiture genre; sometimes figure in a landscape - as the other. Tria Giovan, Cig Harvey, Mariette Pathy Allen, and Rebecca Soderholm come from differing backgrounds, landscapes, social and cultural contexts, but each uses her practice to find out about relationships between herself and another, herself and her self, and herself and the camera. Mariette Pathy Allen is a noted photographer of the transgender community, Cig Harvey photographs the figure in the landscape, Rebecca Soderholm's photography is more about relationships.
