Interview with Roe Ethridge
The Photographers’ Gallery, London
In this video, produced on the occasion of an exhibition of work by artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2011, Roe Ethridge speaks about his photographs of the of the 2000s. Describing his work as “American by default,” he discusses his subject matter and playing with the idea of the visual fugue, or devising sequences of pictures with multiple voices and counterpoints, as in a score or song.
