Aperture Presents Angry Black Snake Photographs by Michael Corridore

Aperture Foundation is a non-profit arts institution dedicated to promoting photography in all its forms, and as part of our ongoing mission to support the work of emerging photographers, Aperture is presenting an exhibition featuring the work of Australian photographer Michael Corridore, winner of the 2008 Aperture Portfolio Prize, in our project space (adjacent to the main gallery). Part of a new initiative, these prints are available for sale, with the proceeds benefiting both the artist and Aperture Foundation. Artist Reception Thursday, March 11, 2010 6:00–8:00 pm

Michael Corridore

In the words of Aperture book publisher Lesley A. Martin, “Corridore’s project, Angry Black Snake, is an exercise in minimalism. Each image has been pared down to the barest of elements—urgent gestures and barely traceable figures cloaked in smoke and dust. Yet each image pulses with palpable emotional tension, telegraphed by these barest of representational sketches and the subtle shifting colors of the clouds that descend upon each scene like a flimsy curtain.”

Michael Corridore is a graduate of Photography Studies College, Australia. He opened exhibitions of this work at the Australian Centre for Photography in January 2009 and, concurrently in May 2009, at the Ipswitch Art Gallery and Gippsland Art Gallery. Corridore is currently based in New York City and Sydney, Australia.
