As above, so below
6 October – 9 December 2017
Yossi Milo Gallery, New York
Ben Cauchi’s first solo exhibition in the USA, As above, so below, is presented at Yossi Milo Gallery, New York.
A master of collodion wet-plate photography Cauchi’s series of ambrotypes depict sheets of crumpled paper – transferring their detailed, three-dimensionality onto a thin, flat sheet of glass. His new burnished ambrotypes are imageless works composed only of the materials of the wet-collodian technique; pure light and silver.
In the increasingly digitised arena of photography, Cauchi remains devoted to a slow, labor intensive process, emphasising the alchemical wonder and craftsmanship of early photography.
