Richard Mosse At Jack Shainman, one New Young Photographer to Watch!
The Richard Mosse photography show at the Jack Shainman Gallery, this is one new young photographer's show you do not want to miss.
It's the first Solo show in NYC, by this recent Yale Photography MFA, and Richard was just additionally awarded The Leonore Annenberg Fellowship in the Performing and Visual Arts. This is a major new grant which will enable Mosse to travel extensively over the coming two years to make new work. So..Congrat's to Richard Mosse.
When you go see the show.. you won't be surprised Mr. Mosse won a major art award already. You can also check out his work on his website..here..
Actually, You may have have seen his work already, Richard is on the front cover of SOURCE - Photographic Review, a British photography magazine,
OR just, maybe you've read a bit about Richard on Brian Sherwin's Art Blog, MyArtSpace.com
There's a very nice artist interview between Richard and Brian..which was well worth a read.

So you could say.. this young Irish chap has more than just hit the ground running. Richard, already lists Marty Margulies as someone who's collecting his artwork...
Well.. the show is great.. We loved the documentary nature of his photo project. It's a series of airplane disasters simulator, which is very much in the same spirit as another one of MAO's favorite British photographers, Sarah Pickering. But to MAO, Richard's photos come off a bit more literary. For both Dr. Quiz and MAO, they immediately brought to mind an entire genre of scary airplane disaster flicks... or even a bit of a trace of the 9-11 terrorism. Maybe these photos are just a sign of the times.. Hmm....
So before everyone heads down to Art Basel Miami Beach 2008 (sadly, to be henceforth known as..The Last Big Art Party Before Tons of Teetering Chelsea Galleries GO BUST).. or if you're smartly staying in NYC to save some money, this show is up at the Jack Shainman Gallery until December 20th. So, Check it out! And keep your eye on this young photographer/artist, Richard Mosse..
