OHWOW is set to host David Benjamin Sherry’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, entitled Wonderful Land, opening April 18.
The exhibition presents a new series of Sherry’s photographs taken over the course of several months while he travelled through the Western and Southwestern states, recording scenes of the American landscape in exceptional detail. Through a painstaking darkroom process, Sherry has transformed these photographs of national parks, monuments, and familiar panoramas into impossibly chromatic and passionate renditions of the country.
Hyper-real in detail and showcasing incredible depth, brilliant colors have been achieved through Sherry’s analog darkroom printing process, as he seeks new tones, values and hues, which evoke an emotional state as a result.
Wonderful Land runs through May 17, 2013.
