Isolated Gesture
by Bil Zelman
Description

“Since Garry Winogrand, Larry Fink, Diane Arbus, William Klein and so many others, the aesthetic of the “wrong” has become accepted practice in photography. Aggressive framing, dramatic contrast, unconventional subjects, unflattering shots—all have become comfortably ensconced in the standard repertoire. These photographers—and Zelman positions himself among them—are not exactly conceptual pranksters in the Baldessari mold, but they’re agitators of a related sort, purposely getting it wrong in one way so as to get it right in another, disrupting visual order to ignite a kind of visceral disorder” — Los Angeles Times
