Where to Go and What to See

My gallery pick this week easily goes to Corey Arnold's moody maritime series Fish-Work (opening on the 26th at Sara Tecchia Roma New York). Arnold is a crab fisherman from Alaska who spent six years photographing his coworkers on the Bering Sea, after which he received a grant to photograph fishermen in Norway. The photos from this show pull from both experiences, but they are merely evidence of a work in progress; Arnold considers this a life-long project, and he will soon photograph fishermen in Alaska and Russia. His images are often ominous, capturing eerily calm moments on the sea (for example, a railing completely covered in ice, overlooking a barren ocean), as well as moments immediately proceeding something calamitous (like an impending storm or a dark wave approaching the boat). Coupled with Arnold's vivid use of color, Fish-Work will make the steely work of a crab fisherman seem tangible to even the most urbane gallery-goer.
