Philippe Cheng: Still: Conversation and Book Signing

(L to R): Cover of Still: The East End Photographs; Philippe Cheng

Elisabeth Biondi, Terrie Sultan, and Edwina von Gal join photographer Philippe Cheng in a conversation about his book, Still: The East End Photographs (Jovis, 2015). Signing with Cheng to follow.

Still collects photographer Philippe Cheng's images of Long Island, New York, where he lives and works. Seeking to evoke a mood rather than capture the minute visual details of the landscape, Cheng shifts the focus plane within his camera to create scenes that are deliberately blurred. Poetic, personal interpretations of a landscape that has inspired many artists, Cheng's photographs are dominated by intense color and a gentle abstraction. The horizon, the sea, the sand and the beach grass of Long Island all make their appearances, but in abstracted, hazy, dreamlike forms, inviting the viewer to share Cheng's personal connection with the landscape. Still includes contributions by Terrie Sultan, Director of the Parrish Art Museum; curator Elisabeth Biondi; landscape designer Edwina von Gal; and textile designer Jack Larsen.

Friday Nights are made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Corcoran Group and Bridgehampton National Bank.
