FEROZ Galerie: Paris Photo
Thursday, 14 November—Sunday, 17 November 2013
Vernissage Wednesday, 13 November

FEROZ Galerie is pleased to exhibit photographic projects from our exclusively represented artists: Sean Hemmerle, Jory Hull and Michael Somoroff and the August Sander Estate.

August Sander’s influential project, Menschen des 20. Jahrhundert, explores the varied expressions of the human spirit within the shifting social structures of Germany. We have prepared a unique agenda to celebrate this project as well as Sander's 137th birthday, including a special selection of photographs from the Estate and the presentation of a publication offering new insight into the life and work of the artist.

Sean Hemmerle creates distinctive pictures exposing the residual layers of life and living. The project we are showing: Solitary Structures is a selection of photographs of everyday architecture found in places of conflict and struggle, ranging from the Middle East to the Middle of America—his work reveals the hidden signs of vitality and beauty found amidst the tensions. Hemmerle is also the recipient of a prestigious grant for architectural photography from the Graham Foundation in Chicago for his project Brutal Legacy, we will be exhibiting works from this series as well.

My Mind is Racing, is the seductive study of vintage race cars by Jory Hull. His photographic project portrays the graphic pleasures of speed and color as seen on the race track, a testament to the beauty and durability of these vehicles. Kehrer Velag in Heidelberg, is publishing a new book to be released this fall to celebrate this series and will host an artist book signing during Paris Photo.

We also present a selection of work by Michael Somoroff, including photographs from his acclaimed touring exhibition, Absence of Subject. Somoroff has created mysterious new photographs from some of the well-­‐ known portraits by August Sander by removing what is considered the most important element, the sitter. The photographs retain subtle suggestions of their missing subjects in the form of tea services, open books, and pulled out chairs patiently waiting. Somoroff’s pictures question what we as the viewer actually respond to when looking an image.
