While the show has no fixed theme, there are several motifs that run throughout the collection. The mysteries of water, waves, and the ocean deep recur, threading through pictures by Alexej Sachov, Howard Crow, Meg Boscov, and Nikos Menoudarakos. Horses emerge in photographs by Cince Johnston and Virgil DiBiase. Pairs of two people appear in the work of Ava Williams, Kristin Anderson, Cole Ndelu, while David Comora, Dhanraj Emanuel, and Ashley Garrett use shadowplay to create a surreal “doubling” effect.
Together, these photographs speak to feelings of magic, mythos, and mystery, while also examining our ever more precarious relationship with the natural world and its wonders, from the depths of the sea to the clouds in the sky.
If you’re in New York, see the show in person at ClampArt Gallery on March 2nd. For more from The Print Swap, our international photo-sharing initiative, check out our website and follow along on Instagram at @theprintswap.
