Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York presents Deep Shade, an exhibition of photographs by 2016 Workspace Resident Lisa Fairstein. Fairstein’s series, Deep Shade, is influenced by the visual shorthand of web-based photos. Drawn to images made for online consumption, the artist isolates poetic fragments. In her studio, she sources and re-stages these moments, often using printed back drops, props and hired models. By recreating the fractured scenes in higher resolution, and at a size and speed made for contemplation, she makes slow photographs motivated by accelerated looking.
