David Benjamin Sherry is a magician of the darkroom. Celebrated for his use of vivid color and his skill with traditional analog photographic techniques, he has established himself as a leading voice in contemporary photography. His work has often examined the landscapes of the American West and the environmental challenges the region faces.Pink Genesis introduces Sherry’s equally intriguing but lesser-known series of striking, large-scale, camera-less color photograms, laboriously made by hand in the darkroom. Using cardboard masks to create mesmerizing geometric forms that reference histories of photography, as well as artists such as Josef Albers and James Turrell, Sherry captivates viewers with a fresh way of seeing.This book, the first dedicated to Sherry’s photograms, collects 29 of these exquisite and unique works that delight in the pleasures of form, color and coded Queer reference.
