PABLO CABADO | RECENT WORK
September 12 - October 31 2009
Dina Mitrani Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of Recent Work by Pablo Cabado opening on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 7 pm.
Pablo Cabado, Guggenheim Fellowship recipient in 2002, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, studied photography in Mexico City, and since then has been exhibiting his photographs in the U.S., France, Italy, the Netherlands, Cuba, Mexico and Argentina.
The Photographs in this exhibition are a selection from two separate recent series, one in color and the other in black and white. The color project, 37o57'35 S 57o34'49 W documents a mysterious and abandoned amusement park, inhabited by ruined rides and the echo of the culture that once was. His white and black photographs also explore buildings and dark landscapes where life once thrived. All of Cabado's images are created with a keen eye for texture and a sensibility for tonal gradation that are a feast for the viewer's eyes.
Among his many grants and awards, Cabado was given the Young Photographer of the Year in the ICP of New York (New York 1989), the Mother Jones Grant (San Francisco 1990), and the Gran Premio de Honor del Salon de Artes Visuales (Argentina 2000). His work is included in Museums and private collections in Latin America, the U.S. and Europe.
Cabado currently lives and works in Buenos Aires. He Photographs with a large format camera (8x10" and 4x5") and travels in his 1979 Ford Falcon.
