Now on view at WALLSPACE gallery in Chelsea is photographer Walead Beshty’s recent project Popular Mechanics.
Beshty is known for using photography as a tool to explore the social and political conditions of our material culture. He has a focused eye but yet a very laid-back awareness of the subjects around him. There is often a sense of uncertainty when looking at his work. He uses several media, including photograms, which appear as luminous abstract compositions where lines of demarcation do not seem to apply.
Beshty was featured in the Fall 2008 issue of Aperture magazine.
