Jim Kempner Fine Art presents the first solo exhibition in the United States for photographer David Mitchell, featuring a selection of photographs from several bodies of work completed between 2008 and 2011. This show is comprised of atmospheric images from the Linear and Anamnesis collections as well as a look into Mitchell’s Luminaries windows and the non-objective Abstracts from 2010 and 2011. The photographs of David Mitchell will be on display from March 29th through May 5th, with an opening reception on March 29th from 6 – 8pm.

Mitchell’s photography career began in the early eighties in London, Florence and Milan. In 1991 he moved to Hong Kong where he found instant success shooting, predominately black and white, for prestigious fashion labels and magazines including Christian Dior, Vogue, and Elle. He also picked up commercial clients such as, Mercedes-Benz, Sony, and Ericsson. By the mid-nineties Mitchell began to diversify his aesthetic to a fine art arena.

David Mitchell affirms that before, during, and after the seizures brought on by his Left Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, his perception and perspective become distorted. Sound and vision are unclear and hazy, placing the afflicted in a momentary state of solitude. The auras created by this illness, are visually mirrored in Mitchell’s Linear series. The Linear series is about sanctuary, a room or a window, which belongs to the self.
