Communal living has never looked better than on this Dutch property, where five families proved democratic design can have spectacular results. Through over-printing and deft use of negative space, Johnson’s piece plays with the notion of sharing.
This exhibition highlights work by three contemporary photographers, each of whom implemented a panoramic viewpoint to examine a specific urban environment. Catherine Opie (American, born 1961) created inkjet prints from scans of 7x17-inch negatives of the mini-malls that characterize Los Angeles's automobile culture. Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao (Taiwanese, born 1977) digitally combined color film negatives into seamless inkjet prints for his Habitat 7 project, which traces the route of the New York subway from Queens to Manhattan. By layering hand-cut chromogenic prints made in Reykjavik at midnight during the summer solstice, Soo Kim (American, born South Korea, 1969) achieved the three-dimensional effect of a semitransparent city.
