Victor Schrager: Composition as Explanation
SWITZERLAND
ZÜRICH.  •  Galerie Edwynn Houk  •  Ongoing
 
 
A master of still-life photography and widely revered for his images of birds and everyday objects, Victor Schrager (b. 1950 American) embraces modernism while rethinking its components to create something new. Over the past twenty-five years, books have been a main element in Schrager’s photographs. In his ongoing project, Composition as Explanation, he has focused on the book itself, using its color and shape in a purely aestheticized context. Pages are not revealed, titles are not seen: the ultimate symbol of intellectual investigation has been reduced to form. This is the artist's first exhibition in Zürich.
