Mitch Epstein, BP Carson Refinery, California, from the series “American Power,” 2007.
This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Mitch Epstein. Epstein’s new series of work, on view now at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. gallery in New York, focuses on New York’s trees. On this week’s MAN Podcast, Epstein and I talk about how trees also figured in his iconic “American Power” series, including in BP Carson Refinery, California. The refinery takes center-stage in this picture, but the trees at the top of the frame, along the BP property and the apparently dying tree in the median all have something to say.
Epstein is one of America’s most prominent and most honored photographers. His work is in the collection of virtually every major museum in the world. He was the winner of the 2011 Prix Pictet for his series “American Power.”
On the second segment of this week’s MAN Podcast, Denver Art Museum curator Eric Paddock and I discuss work by Epstein’s teacher, Garry Winogrand. Fifty photographs from Winogrand’s “Women are Beautiful” series are on view now at the Denver Art Museum.
