Navigating by Light
The Emperor's River
Photographing Along China's Grand Canal
Through October 29, 2011

Book Signing
Thursday, October 6th

Artist at the gallery to sign copies of his book Oct. 6 - 8

Works from Philipp Scholz Rittermann's new series, The Emperor's River: Photographing Along China's Grand Canal are elegant and expansive. The panoramic format and palate of the work is well chosen. Something traditional, historic, and narrative is evoked, as broad frames become reminiscent of scrolls. The work is honest and revealing; we have the impression we are looking through time- backward and forward. This is a genuine window onto the actual evolution of China.

Images were taken in 2009 along the world's longest man-made waterway, the Grand Canal. Winding over 1,000 miles between Beijing and Hangzhou there is much to be seen. The story of China itself seems to be revealed in Scholz Rittermann's frames. Ancient bridges arch gracefully over waterways, rural port towns bustle day and night with activity, locals rest in pavilions, power plants loom over evening streets, and new high rises push upward and outward. These are more than images, these are true experiences in time and place.

Visit the show and meet the artist in person- Philipp will be in the gallery Oct. 6 - 8 to discuss his photography as well as sign copies of his book Navigating By Light. If afar, please visit the exhibition online at Scott Nichols Gallery.
