2point8’s pleased to learn that Mark Alor Powell is having a show in Chicago in a few weeks. You should go if you’re in the mid-west, or anywhere else – like Canada! (Or Atlanta?) It’s at Gallery 40000 on North Peoria.
Mark Powell at Gallery 40000, April 6th – May 5th, 2007
From the gallery press release:
“Mark Powell is a photographer recently transplanted to Mexico City from Detroit. V.I.P. & Selections is a look at life in Mexico City that is at once poignant, serious, humorous and meditative. Combined, they create a cinemagraphic narrative that in effect moves beyond traditional street photography though is still referent to iconic photographers such as Bresson, Levitt, and Shore. Mark’s photographs have a way of being simultaneously epic and intimate. By moving beyond the snapshot aesthetic that is prevalent in contemporary photo-documentation, these are works that allude to something more experiential and honest.”
