6 November – 7 December NY / JORDAN SULLIVAN
Opening Reception Sunday 9 November 2014, 6 – 8 PM.
Photographs from Jordan Sullivan's The Young Earth. The Young Earth follows three Americans in their twenties, one of them terminally ill, as they explore the idyllic and remote corners of Iceland. As they immerse themselves into those foreign and wild landscapes, they are forced to confront their own mortality and a past love triangle that briefly disturbed their friendship. One man, leaving behind the ones he loves, faces his impending death and the question of the afterlife, when the other one contemplates an uncertain future and loneliness without his best friend. The Young Earth explores how two men attempt to find courage and serenity in the face of oncoming tragedy. The landscape images in the series capture the expansiveness of Iceland. Juxtaposed with these images are voyeuristic portraits depicting moments of indecision, anxiety, wonder, and reflection. The landscapes and portraits act as mirrors of one another, reflecting the history and inner lives of both subjects. The Young Earth gives the viewer the sense of wandering through the private and shared memories of its characters.

Inspired by the tradition of British animal portraiture, his images reference the 18th-century paintings of George Stubbs and the 19th-century canvasses of Edwin Landseer. Fladeboe's pictures have been featured in publications including American Photography, The Vice Photo Book and the forthcoming publication Identities Now: Contemporary Portrait Photography.
