“The wave is not the water. The water merely tells us of the passing of the wave.”
—Buckminster Fuller

Physics describes the Event Horizon as the boundary of a black hole, a one-way crossing between the universe outside and an undiscovered state within, the point of no return between one reality and another. Einstein’s theory of Special Relativity proved that different observers, in different states of motion, see different realities. The nearer one approaches the Event Horizon, the stronger the effect on space and time.  Nothing – not even light – can escape its power.

This exhibition and book published by Nazraeli Press explores the nature of perception and reality.  The photograph as a portal from one perception of reality to another, employing the Event Horizon as a metaphor for that passageway. A photograph can be such a passageway, where form is a place mark for other, more fundamental elements, like the movement of trees manifesting the wind.  Seen in this way, a subject may be less important for what it is, or where it is, than for what it can reveal to us of its underlying, essential nature: a visual harmonic. Event Horizon seeks to explore such ideas.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION:

The Lucie Editions are limited edition, signed poster prints by master photographers that have been recognized at The Lucie Awards between 2003 and 2016. These Lucie Honorees represent some of the most important photographers of the 21st century.

These 56 iconic photographs have been produced in editions of 50 signed posters and 450 unsigned posters. Most of the editions are signed on an anti-acid archival label with the edition number on the back, while some of the posters are signed on the front of the poster.

All posters, signed and unsigned, are stamped on the back by the collection. Upon purchase, you will receive the accompanying Certificate of Authenticity with the edition #, print materials, image and signature details as well as our Lucie Editions representative signature.

This program was created with the intention to make iconic photographs by the Lucie Honoree photographers more accessible to aspiring photographers and photo enthusiasts around the world.
