Patterns of Interest at NYU Kimmel Gallery!

Patterns of Interest: Photography by Stephen Mallon at NYU Kimmel Gallery  NOW EXTENDED through MAY 1st!

The Kimmel Galleries of New York University are pleased to present Patterns of Interest: Photography by Stephen Mallon, Included in this exhibit are 20 photographic works by artist Stephen Mallon, whose work bridges the gap between fine art and photojournalism.  Patterns of Interest is on view through May 1st, 2015, with the opening reception on February 6, from 6-8pm. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. For more info, please see the Facebook page.
Throughout his career, he has covered a variety of different photojournalistic projects with a keen, and artistic eye. From Salvage of Flight, a series of photographs documenting the salvaging of the US Air flight that airline captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger managed to safely emergency¬ land in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, to most notably, Next Stop the Atlantic, wherein he photographed the use of deaccessioned subway cars being repurposed as coral reefs, Mallon has pushed the boundaries of documentary photograph both in subject, composition and execution. 
In Patterns of Interest, the works are further re-contextualized; intentionally taken out of their respective, larger bodies of work, in order to subvert context and allow the viewer to concentrate and meditate on the individual compositions expressed and the patterns illustrated in the plastic, concrete and steel.
