Exhibition: Brian Henry | Original Polaroid and Experimental Darkroom Prints

  • Steven Amedee Gallery & Framing 41 North Moore Street New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

Steven Amedee Gallery & Framing in New York is pleased to present the work of Brian Henry! Employing traditional and experimental printing techniques, Brian Henry makes individually unique silver gelatin prints in his darkroom. With his deep fascination for process and pushing the boundaries of photographic emulsion, Henry’s passion for experimentation is borne from attempts to accurately portray atmosphere as he sees it, often imposed with a phantasmal self through multiple and long exposures. Some of Henry’s alternative processes speak to the layers of decay within the abandoned spaces he often shoots. Others images are printed on expired photographic paper found left behind within these buildings. Invoking nostalgia and mystery, Henry’s images reflect the beauty of vulnerability while questioning existence and mortality. That they resonate with a sense of timelessness as they ponder impermanence makes them all the more compelling.

About Brian Henry:
Brian Henry (1989) is a self-taught, experimental art photographer and explorer. His first camera came from money he earned blowing up balloons. While Brian Henry had won a few scholarships to attend art school, he chose to apply his money to his own unscripted, artistic journey. He has traveled up and down the East Coast of the U.S., as well as Europe and the Balkans.

His work is an ongoing journal documenting architectural decay, fears, freedom and mortality. He portrays the beauty he sees in forlorn locations and uses himself as a medium to connect with them. Although many photographs are made, a large part of his work is the adventure of exploring new territory and experiencing the unknown. His self portraits have been therapeutic in that it's pushed him to step out of his comfort zone and explore different levels of fear and anxiety.

Brian Henry currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland. You can connect with him on his website here!
