I approached the current collection at Paris Photo L.A. with my eclectic lens. Here are some thoughts on what moved me and what I am inclined to add to our collection.
My two favorites tell the same story yet so very long apart in time. Ronan Guillou at NextLevelGalerie tells me a story in the same way that Edward Sheriff Curtis at Bruce Kapson Gallery does. Each shows us life on life’s terms with the attention or inattention of American society as an overlay. Sad and triumphant and both beautiful in their capture. I would love to see both their work hanging side by side.
