“There comes a point when it is no longer a question of an art that is over here, in a pristine volume, or Out There, on a pristine gallery wall … but an art that has become how you see the world. You no longer merely look (up, out) at it; it is inside you like a lamp, which illuminates all the details spread out below in what might otherwise be an unmitigated darkness.”
(Ian Pennman, Storylines)
Published on the occasion of the exhibition curated by Paul Graham at the International Center for Photography (ICP) in New York in January 2012, ‘But Still, It Turns” is a revitalizing manifesto for photography. The dynamic and diverse work gathered here advocates an unashamed, but not uncomplicated, dedication to the brilliant tangle of reality.
Included are Gregory Halpern’s Californian waking dream ZZYZX; Vanessa Winship’s peripatetic exercise in empathy she dances on Jackson; the human assemblages of Curran Hatleberg’s Lost Coast; Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa’s rich and multitudinous One Wall a Web; the mortality-tinged America of Richard Choi’s What Remains; RaMell Ross’ visionary documentary work South County; the collaborative project Index G by Emanuele Bruti & Piergiorgio Casotti; and Kristine Potter’s disorientating exploration of the American landscape and masculinity in Manifest.
The book also includes essays by Paul Graham, Rebecca Bengal, RaMell Ross, and Ian Penman.
