Richard Learoyd: In the Studio
August 30–November 27, 2016

The contemplative mood and mesmerizing level of detail in the large-scale color photographs of Richard Learoyd (English, born 1966) present an uncanny intimacy between the depicted subject and the viewer. Working in his East London studio, the photographer utilizes a room-sized camera obscura with a fixed lens to make unique direct-positive prints. Eschewing digital technologies, his method emphasizes the creative potential of working under self-imposed restrictions. This is the first exhibition in an American museum to examine Learoyd’s studio-based practice.
