Philip-Lorca DiCorcia’s ‘Thousand’ at David Zwirner Gallery

Philip-Lorca DiCorcia’s Untitled, 980, from Thousand, via David Zwirner.

David Zwirner Gallery is presenting its first solo show of NYC based artist Philip-Lorca DiCorcia. The exhibit involves 1,000 Polaroids shot by the contemporary photographer over the span of almost three decades. The exhibit reveals DiCorcia’s cinematic approach to photography-- a balance between documentary and staged photography. On a philosophical level on could say that DiCorcia’s Polaroids focus on the juxtaposition of fact and fiction. Upon viewing the photographs one can easily establish their own narrative for what the images are communicating. Thus, the exhibit welcomes imagination as viewers take the role of participant. The solo exhibit is titled Thousand and will be open until March 28th, 2009.

I love his photography and I own a copy of his book 'Thousand'... too heavy to lug around but I love looking at it often.
