QUANTUM LIGHT David Benjamin Sherry uses photography, historically the medium used to explicate reality, as a departure from the known or accepted. The images reference the traditional photographic hierarchies of landscape and portraiture, yet they rely on a subversion of the expected, creating pictures of interior landscape via a sublimated view of one's place within the natural world. Color is key to his vision, used as a vehicle to heighten the photographs' emotive qualities, and as conduit to more freely interpretive modes of perception. Quantum Light is the artists second book and explores his most recent works incorporating landscapes, collage, still life, portraiture and sculpture. The introduction to the book is a writ-ten conversation between the artist and Collier Schorr and the designer of the book is Tiffany Malakooti. This book coincides with the artists first solo show at Salon 94 in New York.
Quantam Light is the title of photographer David Benjamin Sherry's second monograph to date, and the name only begins to get at the vibrancy of the images found inside. One of the book's less visually stunning portions is the truly insightful conversation Sherry has with photographer Collier Schorr. In it, Schorr tries to get to the bottom of his use of color as a medium in and of itself, and the artist's sincerity shines just as brightly as his work.--Courtney Malick"V Magazine" (02/01/2012)
