Now Here Then
Opening Reception and Book Signing
The opening reception for the exhibition is also the official release of Huger Foote’s new monograph "Now Here Then," published by Dashwood Books, New York City’s only independent bookstore dedicated to photography.
Foote’s "Now Here Then" exhibition presents a kaleidoscopic glimpse into an ethereal past. These photographs were taken in locations around the world, and over many years, including a rare portrait of his mother he took when he was a boy to a scene from his former flat in London.
The book "Now Here Then" features 36 photographs and essays by authors Susan Minot and Glenn O’Brien. The exhibition includes a selection of 17 photographs from the series.
About his photography, Foote has this to say: “Life spans out over time in these images, there is movement and energy, and a search -- not to document -- but to perceive the elusive order, balance and proportion which so often is sensed but not seen outright. There is a precise combining of elements in the frame, and compositions happen through a sort of dance, by escaping the thinking mind and its calculations and engaging directly with the light and color, with places and things.”
Huger Foote was born in 1961 and has held numerous solo exhibitions in London, New York, Paris, and other cities, including his hometown of Memphis. His work hangs in many public and private collections around the globe. His first monograph, “My Friend from Memphis”, was published in 2001 by Booth Clibborn Editions. He resides in NYC and upstate NY.
