A Vernacular Modernity

Price Harrison’s photographs reveal an eye for shape and for form. More surprising for an architect of pristine white spaces is his attention to color and hue, in many cases the shades of our mass-produced world. His photographs communicate a sense of detail both as noun (the architect’s craft of construction) and verb (the love and indeed the fetishization of finish). They evoke a vernacular modernity of planar surfaces, unexpected light, and industrial products in twenty-first century America. His photographs frequently suggest some recent—or future—human presence and activity. As with all art practice, Harrison’s images coax and spur us to look again at the world in which we live.
