"In the tradition of sacred architecture light has been a symbol of the transcendent, a metaphor for the unknowable. Sacred space becomes a visual theology, a sculpture in light, which I then re-interpret through the medium of photography. These images in silver become a meditation, which expresses mans attempts at self-definition through matter, form and luminosity."—Blaine Ellis

Gregory Crewdson: <em>Fireflies</em> Gregory Crewdson: Fireflies
"In the summer of 1996, Gregory Crewdson spent two solitary months at his family's cabin in Becket, Massachusetts. Using both small- and medium-format cameras, he obsessively photographed the fireflies that came alive at dusk each evening. Crewdson was drawn to the flickering lights, in part, by the underlying impossibility of capturing their elusive beauty in pictures."—the publisher READ MORE

With a name that refers to x-rated images and the obscene, the works shown in Pornografie may be far from a voyeur's expectations."—the publisher READ MORE
