From the Photo Miami Exhibition 2007

by Bradley Fink (writer), Fort Lauderdale, December 10, 2007


From the Photo Miami Exhibition 2007

The International Contemporary Art Fair for Photo Based Art ended this Sunday as part of Miami’s annual Art Basel festival. The exhibition was a eclectic display of photography, video, and new media ranging from cultural commentary, to the sexually symbolic, to the just plain strange. Apart from the collections of modified photography there was a prominent showing of traditional (albeit digital) works, which for this writer dominated the show. Perhaps the most powerful of these was that of The Galleria Maria Llanos, featuring an environmental theme by Jose Maria Mellado of Spain. In his series “Paisaje Natural” Mellado uses images of desolate landscapes marked by cold, dark tones to emphasize the footprint of man on nature, creating a foreboding feeling of “imminent catastrophe.” In a second series, “Paisaje Urbano”, Mellado takes to the cities in a likewise commentary on the affects of modern industry.

Very cool. I'll be at the photo LA expo in early January 2008. Last year's edition was awesome, hopefully this one will be even better.
