Check out the playfully dark work of Cleo Sullivan. Cleo’s work is inspired by her early childhood. They are fanciful and convey a quirky unique sense of humor. Her clients include Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Barneys to name a few.
Check out the work of Andreas Gursky. He comes out of the Becher school of photography and approaches his subject matter with a dispassionate method of cataloging. His work is massively large scale and creates a sense of disorientation to the viewer because of the elevated perspective. This vantage point creates a disassociation or alienation of the viewer from the subject matter.
His work is internationally recognized and is in the collection of MoMa, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Tate Modern to name a few.
Check out the work of Tina Barney. She is another of my favorite photographers. If you happen to find yourself in Nashville, she is showing her photographs of “The Europeans” at The First Center for the Visual Arts. Forbes Magazine has a nice write up about it.
Barney’s work is in the collections of the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film and the Museum of Modern Art, amongst many others.
She is represented by Paul Kasmin Gallery
Check out the work of Mark Ryden. His work draws heavily from 19th century influxes and is packed with an odd assortment of Mystery Religion symbolism such as the eye of Horus, the Cabalistic Tree of Life, the worker bee, the pentacle and the caduceus, to name a few. His work is a haunting blend of prepubescent innocence and an externalization of the “hierarchy” (as Alice Bailey once described).

Check out the work of Candida Hofer. She was a student of the famous Bernd and Hilla Becher. Hofer was the instructor of artists such as Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Struth at the Hochschule fur Gestaltung.
Her work explores the concept of space and purpose. She will not include people in her works, and is quoted saying, ““…it became apparent to me that what people do in these spaces – and what these spaces do to them – is clearer when no one is present, just as an absent guest is often the subject of a conversation.”
Hofer’s work is internationally recognized and is included in the collections of the Louvre, the Kuntsmuseum Lucerne, MoMa and the Guggenheim Museum to name a few.
