“Road to Tennessee is composed equally of a photographic image and a patchwork quilt. Such dualities find their way into my work from many angles. Flipping through a gay erotic magazine, the image of a man amid a woodland scene caught my eye and instantly reminded me of the shallow creek beds and wooded foothills of my idyllic childhood in rural Tennessee. In stark contrast, the nude man at the center of this scene confronts my adult sexuality. The image is complex for me and begs an intervention: the porno guy is cut away so I can be filled in. His absence leaves only the echo of landscape, and here I embed unfinished patchwork, both a marker of my traditional craft background and a symbol of my own pieced-together identity. Aptly named “Road to Tennessee”, this specific quilt pattern has a cage, or net-like appearance, which I cannot help but connect to my own feelings of being trapped in my personal journey to/from home.” (Aaron McIntosh)

“Easton Nights is a story of an American city which begins with the world often seen as mundane, only to reveal cascading layers of mystical stages infused with a timeless romance. Backyards, car lots, trucks, houses, signs and facelessToyotas work together forming surreal environments one might expect in a Guillermo del Toro film or possibly the animated energy found in a Burchfield landscape. With its unique color wheel and ambient lights, the night isolates and then amplifies our curious environment giving homage to what we often ignore
This story centers on Easton, but encompasses the entire Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania as well as the sister town of Phillipsburg, New Jersey. With a population of almost one million, the area has no real downtown, or urban center. Instead it is a grouping of many small towns, many Main Streets, and many nationalities. This together with a history dating back to the Revolution creates a microcosm both unique and typical; a fascinating cross-section of Americana.”

“Fukase incorporated his personal struggle with loss and depression into his work in a surprisingly playful manner. His subjects are personal and highly intimate: over the years, his wife Yoko, his dying father and his beloved cat Sasuke regularly featured in sometimes comical, at other times sombre visual narratives. Towards the end of this working life, the photographer increasingly turned the camera on himself. The huge number of self-portraits – precursors to today’s ubiquitous selfie – testifies to the singular, almost obsessive way that the artist related to his surroundings, and to himself. ”

“Transience is one of the key themes of the Olbricht Collection. And what artistic medium other than photography could be better suited to addressing the questions of time and history that this theme throws up? Lending duration to the moment is inscribed into the very medium itself. In this property, art and philosophy come together. Ever since Antiquity, eternity has been described as timeless, and it is in this sense that Goethe equates the moment with eternity in his poem ‘Vermächtnis’ (Legacy, 1830). For humanity, the moment is the only perceptible slice of eternity.”
