19th September – 12th October 2019
Huxley-Parlour Gallery are pleased to announce the first exhibition of new work by celebrated photographer, Gregory Halpern.
For the last fifteen years, Gregory Halpern has been photographing in Omaha, Nebraska, steadily compiling a lyrical, if equivocal, response to the American Heartland. Halpern’s series explores notions of cognitive dissonance and unexpected harmonies, playing on a sense of simultaneous repulsion and attraction to the place. The series is ultimately a meditation on America, on the men and boys who inhabit it, and on the mechanics of aggression, inadequacy, and power.
The exhibition coincides with the launch of the MACK publication, Omaha Sketchbook. The book is a follow up to his award-winning bestseller ZZYZX.
