Justice De Los Santos, Summer, Photographic Print on Fibre Based Paper

The Agora Gallery (530 West 25th Street, Chelsea, New York, NY, 10001) is proud to present Justice De Los Santos in Altered States of Reality: an Exhibition of Analog and Digital Fine Art Photography. Scheduled to run from November 19th through December 9th, the collection will feature a captivating selection of Justice De Los Santos' unique images.

About Justice De Los Santos:

Justice De Los Santos remembers peering through a keyhole during a childhood game of hide-and-seek, observing details of the world beyond his closet-hiding place. This feeling returned years later when he first picked up a camera, and from then on he has used photography to document the artistic impulse of lives, not just subjects. A first look at a De Los Santos print may not reveal anything unfamiliar—but this is by design, as the artist visually arrests what we are wont to overlook. "Through my work, I seek to represent the simple passage of time as art within itself," he states. His various incorporations of shadow, his portrayal of texture, and his play with space and dimension frame the intricacies of everyday life imitating art, and not the other way around.

Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in the Bronx, De Los Santos's photographs have been influenced by the works of Roy DeCarava, Gordon Parks, and Eugene Richards.

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 20, 2008, 6-8 pm
