The Lives of Books
June 4 – August 27, 2016
Dina Mitrani Gallery is pleased to present The Lives of Books, opening June 4th at 7pm and on view through August 27th. This exhibition brings together a group of photographs that celebrates books and their aesthetic qualities as still lives. While mindful of the narratives conveyed through their pages, this show invites the viewer to inspect the journey of the book itself. In today's dominantly digital world, these images remind us to revisit the printed page, the bindings, textures, stories and histories.
Artists included are Mary Ellen Bartley (New York), Ellen Cantor (California), Marina Font (Miami), Max Steven Grossman (Colombia), Vadim Gushchin (Russia), Alexandra Rowley (New York), Phil Toledano (New York), and Michael Zimmerer (Miami).
