Rebecca Soderholm: Crescendoe
FEB. 28-MAY 11
WINDOW PROJECTS AT THE WAREHOUSE GALLERY, VIEWABLE 24/7
Photographer Rebecca Soderholm focuses on Upstate New York, its people and landscape, while capturing a collective human spirit in today’s world. For the Window Projects, “Crescendoe,” is titled after one of the many tanneries that produced leather gloves in Johnston, N.Y., during the first half of the 20th century, nearby where the work for this exhibition was created. Developed as three panels that fit the large Warehouse Gallery windows, Soderholm accentuates the three-dimensionality of a fence, underlines the painterly qualities of a photographed landscape, and reveals her own ascination with the beauty of often forgotten landscapes. Born in Syracuse, N.Y., Soderholm received her B.F.A. in photojournalism from the Rochester Institute of Technology and her M.F.A. in Photography from Yale University School of Art, where she studied with Todd Papageorge and Gregory Crewdson. An assistant professor of photography at Drew University (Madison, N.J.), Soderholm’s most recent exhibition, Upstate was shown at 511 Gallery in New York City in the Spring of 2012. She currently lives in Upstate New York and Madison, N.J. This is her first solo museum show.
