Still Film

Glenn Novak, Burke Paterson

“To be an artist - to be a photographer - you have to nurture the things that other people discard. You have to keep them alive.” - Richard Avedon. Paterson and Novak have photographed the orphaned objects of an ever-changing capitalist society. Now they have adopted the endangered muse for their new body of work: film itself as an object. These artists reveal the warmth and sensuality of the medium often perceived as the coldest of the Modernist era. - J.L.
