> DESCRIPTION

Dina Mitrani Gallery is proud to present Light in the Shadows: Photographs by William Maguire and Roberto Riverti, opening on Thursday, September 6th at 7pm and on view through November 2nd 2012.  This exhibition examines the work of two contemporary photographers, from different parts of the world, exploring black and white night photography with a classic sensibility.  Maguire, a well-known professor at Florida International University, and Riverti, an Argentine transplanted in Uruguay, both point their lenses to the lights and shadows produced by the night. 

The exhibition presents a grouping of Maguire’s “motorcycle and car” photographs, taken in the 1970s that are richly imbued with American culture and trends of the time. His larger, framed works are quiet depictions of desolate landscapes illustrating architectural structures, vehicles and the occasional human figure caught in the mysterious glow of a streetlamp or lit neon sign.

Riverti’s photographs also document buildings and places after sunset, yet they contain a melancholy produced by the historical buildings and by the light that dramatically moves through the image.  Through his lens, Riverti captures images with a romantic view depicting a reverence for his South American landscapes.  Both artists offer remarkable aesthetic documents of their countries and cultures, with a richness and tonal depth that lures the viewer and evokes contemplation.  

Dina Mitrani Gallery opened in November 2008 and specializes in international contemporary photography. The gallery represents emerging and mid-career artists, offers artists talks and lectures on photography, as well as photo-based books. The gallery is committed to promoting its artists, as well as working with independent curators to produce unique group exhibitions.
