Robert Polidori

2010-10-12
From the Edwynn Houk Gallery: “(Robert Polidori) prefers the qualities of beauty, stillness and contemplation that come from working with a large format camera and employing slow shutter speeds. He thinks of rooms as metaphors and vessels for memory – places marked by the signatures of lives past and present.” In 2006, The Metropolitan Museum of Art commissioned Robert Polidori to photograph New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The show drew the highest attendance of any of the museum’s photography exhibitions. Image from the 1997 Havana series © Robert Polidori, courtesy Edwynn Houk Gallery.
