FROM THE SHADOWS
SUSAN BURNSTINE & LYNN SAVILLE
From the Shadows features works by Los Angeles-based Susan Burnstine and Manhattan-based Lynn Saville. In these black and white images, both photographers capture mostly urban landscapes heightened with a sense of mystery and drama. Burnstine constructs handmade cameras and lenses to depict dreamlike places and moments in time. The hazy distortion suggests the locations are imprinted with memories or lying on the edge of consciousness. Saville explores night’s seductive essence in a series of photographs shot in Paris, Venice and New York City. In Staten Island Ferry, the vessel becomes a lone apparition on the river while in The Flatiron Building the buildings are a darkened triangular mass defined by the glow of street and automobile lights.
