Opening Reception

Matthew Pillsbury: City Stages

Wednesday, February 19

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Aperture Gallery and Bookstore 547 West 27th Street New York, NY


City Stages 
offers a paean to the craft and visionary potential of large-format, black-and-white photography, as well as to the vibrancy of the cultural landscape at a transitional moment—a moment in which our very relationship to that landscape is increasingly mediated by omnipresent screens. Working with black-and-white, 8-by-10 film and long exposures, Pillsbury captures a range of psychologically charged experiences in the urban environment. This exhibition is produced in collaboration with Bonni Benrubi Gallery.
