Nostalgia for the past and hope for the future are the thread running through the work of British photographer Mark Power's work. Two series are currently on display at Amador Gallery- The Sound of Two Songs and The Shipping Forecast. Different in subject and handling the sense of looming change is present in both bodies of work.

The new work, The Sound of Two Songs, looks at contemporary Poland and frames deteriorating vestiges of the Communism and new builds. The color prints are equally longing and hopeful; as we look we teeter between two very different horizons. The older work, The Shipping Forecast, is more figurative and also wanders a line- this between playful and fearful. Children play and explore the water's edge or ride a pony at the beach but some pull at your heart in a painful way. Dover, Friday 6, August 1993 shows a young child sitting alone in a graffitied concrete enclosure. Cold and sharp at first Power reveals vulnerable and fragile realities.

New Yorker Mention.
