Details

MICHAEL EASTMAN – Michael Eastman has established himself as one of the world’s leading contemporary photographic artists. The self-taught photographer is most recognized for his explorations of architectural form and the textures of decay, producing large-scale photographs unified by their visual precision, monumentality, and painterly use of color. Most recently, Eastman traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to capture some of the city’s most iconic interiors; the result of ambitious and extravagant architectural projects to boast its wealth during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. “[His] photographs present a complex tableaux of Buenos Aires’ vibrant history, juxtaposing the splendor of a bygone golden age with present-day realities.”
