“Whatever else a photograph may be about, it is always about time.”—Richard Misrach

Time is an important element in Richard Misrach’s On The Beach 2.0 series currently on display (and ending this Saturday) at Pace/MacGill Gallery in Chelsea. Misrach, who is well known and highly regarded for his landscape work with an 8 x 10 inch view-camera, leaves film behind for the brave new world of digital photography.

Departing from his first On The Beach series from ten years ago, these new photographs, noted with specific dates and times of execution, reflect the “2.0” approach. With digital, the new work has an immediacy Misrach could not capture before in analog.

These large-scale prints emit an understated power. Perhaps it is their size, a heightened perspective and the isolation of the figures in the frame, but there is a mystery underlying them. Seeing them first-hand, you sense a reverence for nature and a melancholy for us. —Lane Nevares
