Harlem Valley / Wingdale Project
Toxic stillness & quiet
Opening Reception for the Artist: Friday, June 22 6-8pm
Featured will be a new photography series taken from the "Harlem Valley /Wingdale Project." Avery Danziger has taken as his subject the beauty and stillness found in neglected man made environments as they work their way inevitably back to chaos. This project involves a large complex of buildings in New York designed and built in the 20's for use as a psychiatric hospital. It is now abandoned, toxic, and scheduled to be demolished in the near future. These photographs are amazing for the capture of the deterioration as a process and are aesthetically astonishing. Danziger is a nationally and internationally known photographer associated with a number of diverse projects, resulting in truly magnificent works exhibited and collected by several museums and numerous private and corporate clients.
