Default Several of our pictures selected by Curator for "Our Daily Photograph"

Two pictures from our recent exhibition at Photo Contemporary 2015, by the Paris Photo 2015 Exhibition in West Hollywood, were chosen for Duncan Miller Galleries 5,500 strong photography-lovers mailing list for the daily art offerings.

Being selected by a commercial gallery does provide an independent vote for the assessment that our collection was worthy of prime time and that our price structure was reasonable.

"The photography fair Photo Independent was held across from Paris Photo/LA in Los Angeles in May 2015. Didn't attend? No worries, this section contains our curator's best picks from the fair."

The two pictures chosen where

1. Cem Usakligil, A picture from the "Industrial Landscapes" series

Industrial Landscapes - 3

Title: Industrial Landscapes - 3

Artist: Cem Usakligil

Date of image: 2010

Size: 13x19 inches

Format: archival pigment

Features: signed on back, edition of 25

What's so special about this work is that it's not just a handsome well composed photograph. There's much more as it is really a challenge for us to think about the society where we take for granted that apposition of leisure and family with polluting industry. Clem's vision is original and simultaneously both beautiful and harsh. That is the exceptional paradox and motif I see in this important series. I would seriously recommend those interested in owning some fine photography relevant to our civilization and worthy of collecting to experience his work at http://opfgalleryone!
