TAMARA KREISLER Gallery

5th June – 20th July 2024, Madrid

On this occasion, we present the third chapter of The Day May Break, entitled Sink/Rise. In this series of photographs Nick Brandt showcases people and animals directly affected by global warming. Brandt takes us to French Polynesia, witnessing the reality of its inhabitants as rising sea levels cause their islands to disappear; destroying their land, home, and way of life.

As always, Nick Brandt executes a technically challenging task with exceptional  grace, beauty and sensitivity. All the photographs were taken underwater, and in the face of an apparently impossible task, Nick creates greatly original work that represents a completely new approach to environmental protest photography.

Although, several meters below the surface, the subjects of Brandt’s mesmerizing photographs neither float nor swim. They simply go about their lives: lazing on sofas, sitting on chairs, and working at desks, as they would on dry land. Once again, with his images, Nick Brandt captures scenes that are both familiar and enigmatic, thought-provoking and inclusive, inviting us to pause, look closer, and delve deeper into what we see.

The exhibition opens on June 5th and runs until July 20th, as part of the Photoespaña 24 festival program. It will undoubtedly leave you changed, questioning, and called to action. I recommend visiting several times, as with each visit more is revealed, both within the images and within ourselves.
