Heliopolis in conjuncture with Jason John Würm’s residency at Heliopolis is proud to present a solo exhibition of photography by Carl Gunhouse, and the release of his 2nd monograph Falling Apart published by Waal-Boght Press.
Everything Falls Apart draws on Carl Gunhouse's academic background as graduate student in American history to investigate the way in which history tends to affect our perception of current events. The work is culled from images made over six years of wandering across America, a path based on intuition and the chase of the occasional historic event. This journey began in the crumbling of the Bush presidency and continued through Obama’s first term, witnessing the unraveling of American prosperity and the long slog of dealing with the repercussions. The resulting work lacks the grandiosity of journalism and its constant hysteria for the now and instead exposes the little visual bits of America that are left to history and give voice to our shared experience.
Signed copies of Falling Apart will be available for purchase for $25.00 at Heliopolis and online at www.waalboghtpress.info
