Pablo Cabado: Recent Work. From Sept 12th through Oct 31st, 2009.
Pablo Cabado, Guggenheim Fellowship recipient in 2002, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, studied photography in Mexico City and since then has been exhibiting his photographs in the U.S., France, Italy, The Netherlands, Cuba, Mexico and Argentina.
The photographs in this exhibition are a selection from two separate recent series, one in color and the other in black and white. The color project, 37°57’35 S 57°34’49 W documents a mysterious and abandoned amusement park, inhabited by ruined rides and the echoes of the culture that once was. His black and white photographs also explore buildings and dark landscapes where life once thrived. All of Cabado’s images are created with a keen eye for texture and a sensibility for tonal gradations that are a feast for the viewers’ eyes.
Among his many grants and awards, Cabado was given the Young Photographer of the Year in the ICP of New York (New York 1989), the Mother Jones grant (San Francisco 1990) and the Gran Premio de Honor del Salon de Artes Visuales (Argentina 2000). His work is included in museums and private collections in Latin America, the US and Europe.
Cabado currently lives and works in Buenos Aires. He photographs with a large format camera (8×10″ and 4×5″) and travels in his 1971 Ford Falcon.
