André Cepeda: “At the Eyes’ Ground” at the Fridman Gallery

Fridman Gallery presents, “At the Eyes’ Ground,” the first solo exhibition in the United States by the acclaimed Portuguese photographer André Cepeda. Opening Reception: Friday, July 15, 6-9pm.


Cepeda’s flash-saturated, careful but quirky compositions challenge the contemporary notion of photography as automatic, instantaneous and objective. For example, he resists the obvious urge to capture landscapes with a horizontal frame, and shoots them vertically. The resulting space is not large enough to allow full viewer immersion; we are made hyperaware of the photograph’s two-dimensionality and of the process of its making. Denied the instant gratification of “entering” the picture and “identifying” with its subject, we are forced to examine them on their own terms.
