Richard Gordon: Loved Photography Too Much
February 1 – April 1, 2017
reception on Wednesday, February 1st, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Richard Gordon frequently examined the role of photography and its relationship with reality, playfully challenging notions of truth and representation, while exploring the exotic of the everyday. This is evidenced in his 1978 book, Meta Photographs. Gordon’s early images depict his time in New York City, exploring the city and hamming around with his good friends, including Kenny Raider, whom he later devoted a book to: One More for the Road: The Autobiography of a Friendship 1966-1996. Some of Gordon’s road trip images call to mind New Topographics in their commentary on how societal changes have altered the aesthetic of the landscape.
