About the Exhibition
Elizabeth Ellenwood’s photographs are distinctly rooted in place and the everyday, and her process and treatment of subject matter emphasize the importance of the elements of photography. Ellenwood’s work is indebted to photographic history—modernism, constructivism, and the angular planes of The New Topographics—yet she creates a distinct new interpretation of the often overlooked elements of the everyday landscape. The elegant simplicity of her compositions highlights the way in which she negotiates natural light, line, shadow, and richness of tone. Nuanced views of outside wires, building façades, and the billowing of a curtain reveal modernist sensibilities and experimentations with form that complicate otherwise familiar spaces to produce a new view on traditional subject matter.
