William Wylie

#01-113, Carrara, 2006 Pigment print, edition of 15 36 x 43 inches

The Page Bond Gallery is showing work from William Wylie's series Carrara through March 9th. The modestly sized (by NYC standards) pigment prints are really well made and fortunately the slabs of marble are given context by a series of portraits of the stone cutters. The style of portraiture seems just a little familiar, no? Nevertheless, they are good.

It's Sander vs. Wylie in the ongoing debate over whether photographers can be accused of plagarism or not.
