This week’s #StaffPickSaturday was chosen by gallery owner, Robert Mann.
Henry Wessel, who belonged to the group of photographers called "New Topographics," observed and documented the vernacular architecture and social landscape of California using its brilliant light a major compositional element in his work. Wessel explored the territory where nature and culture meet. His photographs are structured with inexhaustible richness in the aesthetics of the everyday, turning the least monumental of subjects into a kind of personal poetry.
As in this early silver print of Utah, 1974 picture above, Wessel liked to focus his attention on quiet, simple scenes that may have been missed by a passerby, yet emulated their own unique personality. Capturing the B&W Hotel in black and white also nods at his appreciable sense of humor. This print speaks to his intuition and visual sensibility to render scenes in a way that is formally pleasing and melodic at the same time. 📸: Henry Wessel, Utah, 1974, early silver print, printed prior to 1980.
