Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 gennaio 2010

Hamburg – Germany February 9th, 2010, 6 – 9 pm / all 3 artists will be present February 10th  – March 20th, 2010 Flo Peters Gallery • Chilehaus C. The Flo Peters Gallery starts into the new year with a group exhibition of the highest quality. Under the name Three! the Gallery presents the all American photographers Christopher Makos, Paul Solberg and Vera Mercer. On show will be Polaroids and Photographs by Man Ray-student and Andy Warhol-companion Christopher Makos, as well as colour photographs from Paul Solberg´s cycle Bloom, Eight and Flower on the ground floor.The Galleries first floor will be dedicated to Vera Mercer´s photographic still live arrangements. Christopher Makos, born in 1948 in Massachussetts/USA and raised in California started to work as a Photographer in the 1970s. He was soon given the title „America’s most modern photographer“ by non other than Andy Warhol. However the craft itself he learned under the skilful eye of Photography legend Man Ray in Paris, where he originally planned to study architecture. Paul Solberg’s work, however, juxtapositions itself in strong contrast to that of Makos. The Photographer, whom Christopher Makos on his part allegedly called “America’s most modern photographer” was born in 1969 in Minnesota/USA. He went through college studying Anthropology in Cape Town and Bophuthatswana/South Africa. Vera Mercer’s big format photographs are a jaw-dropping tribute to the old masters of still life Painting. With her surprisingly modern translation of this classic painting theme she replaces the conventional attributes of caducity with synonymous but seemingly new motives. (Mallard,  Marilyn)
