A collection of cityscape photos by Charles Martin [’74 SM] — reflecting New York, São Paulo, Paris and Montréal — will be on view at a solo exhibition in downtown NYC from Sept 8 – Oct 18, 2022.
The exhibition, titled Metropolis, explores how “daylight, twilight and electricity luminously shape and paint the cities,” Chuck writes, calling up comparisons to the geometry of Henri Cartier-Bresson, the abstract vision of Alfred Stieglitz, and the sentiment of Bob Marley in his song “Concrete Jungle,” where he wonders what the city has “got for me now?”
Chuck is a photographer, filmmaker and writer whose work has appeared in American group shows at the Museum of Modern Art (NY), Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian Institution, New York Public Library, Leica Gallery (NY) and the Center for Photography at Woodstock. He has also exhibited in Paris, Algiers and Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Mato Grosso, Brazil. This is his eighth solo show at June Kelly Gallery.
