Self-portraits by 77 New Mexico photographers
For Autophotography, Axle Contemporary assembled an exhibition which includes many of the most compelling photographers working now in the state. We've invited these artists to exhibit works of self-portaiture. The participants include photographers known for diverse genres: Landscape, portraiture, architectural, commercial, fashion, environmental, conceptual, journalism, abstract, and wedding photography. Process ranges from 8x10 view cameras to smartphone photos, from silver gelatin prints to digitally manipulated ink jets prints. For many of the artists, this exhibition has provided an opportunity for experimentation and reflection, outside of the artist's established oeuvre. We are pleased to be able to share this rich portrait of a community of artists-photographers working in New Mexico at this time, by the photographers themselves.
Axle Contemporary Press is publishing a catalog of the exhibition. Photo-Eye Books will host a booksigning with the photographers on Friday, October 18th, from 5-7 pm.
