Sherrie Nickol and David Katzenstein are pleased to announce the opening of their joint exhibition Black on White at Symphony Space in New York City. The series grew out of Katzenstein’s and Nickol’s larger collaboration, The Citizen Project, where they photographed 2500 people in their NOHO studio over a three-year period. These silhouettes serve as a study about shape and form. When the photographers backlit their subjects, gestures and movements became simplified and magnified at the same time. Shown together, the silhouettes take on a cohesiveness as their subjects are flattened against the same white plane.
