STEEL STILLMAN / APRIL 12-25, 2016
Steel Stillman has been a photographer since the late 1970s, recording scenes of often intimate, everyday life with small pocket cameras. The resulting images, typically printed as snapshots at one-hour photo labs, have been the starting point for nearly a dozen bodies of work. Wasp (1989), 2016, from his new series Enlargements, is a blown-up, digital scan of a 1989 snapshot print. It records two things – a moment of the past and its simultaneous documentation – and regards them together from a distance of 27 years.
Steel Stillman was born in New York City in 1955. Recent New York group exhibitions include Foundation Barbin Presents Sort Of at Kai Matsumiya Gallery, and Cuts Noon Light at Brian Morris Gallery. In 2014, he had solo exhibitions at Galerie van Gelder, Amsterdam, and Show Room, Brooklyn. He is also a writer and a contributing editor at Art in America.
