An installation

 

We are delighted to present a new collection in our Gallery by Paul Vlachos. Below is a brief statement from the artist:

 

"I built my first darkroom when I was 10 years old and have been shooting film and digital every since. Before I knew what “documentary” meant, I was documenting things. I wanted to capture and remember things that made an impression on me. Maybe I wanted to keep it forever somehow. I had a Kodak Brownie 127 and was developing Plus-X and Tri-X in my basement. I moved on to a 35mm Olympus OM-1, which I pawned in the mid-80s with an exposed roll of film in it and which I never got back. After a short hiatus, during which I drove trucks around New York City for a living and didn’t shoot, I began to photograph again in 1990 and have been happily shooting ever since.


More than almost anything, I enjoy leaving home, with only a vague destination, and driving for days, seeing what I can find, finding what I see."
