Nicholas Nixon at Pace MacGill

Posted By Administration, Saturday, September 26, 2009
Updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

Nixon used a 1946 view camera to make the black-and-white prints in his latest show, which is divided between two very different but oddly complementary bodies of work, both from the past two years.


Views of downtown Boston, taken from elevated vantage points, emphasize often jarring juxtapositions between old and new. Alongside these studies in urban density are self-portraits made at such close range that Nixon's face becomes a landscape—his beard wild underbrush, his gaping mouth a tar pit—pierced by enormous, all-seeing eyes.

From The New Yorker.
