Peter Blum is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographic works by Nathaniel Dorsky. Film Stills is the first exhibition of the artist’s work at Peter Blum Gallery on view at 20 West 57th Street, New York. There will be an opening reception on Thursday November 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition runs through January 9, 2016.

Nathaniel Dorsky’s photographs extract intimate moments of observation from his acclaimed silent films. This exhibition features a suite of 30 archival pigment prints that distill the poetic spatial layering of the films. If Dorsky’s films are like a waking dream, then the film stills are a memory of that dream-a crystallization of the meditative state achieved by the moving image and an absolute value by which to measure the fleetingness of our collective existence.
