Jeffrey Milstein & Michael Wolf artwork on the cover of 'Civilization'
We are thrilled to announce that internationally acclaimed Bau-Xi photographers Jeffrey Milstein and Michael Wolf will have their work featured on the cover of Civilization, The Way We Live Now, written by Bill Ewing and Holly Roussell Perret-Gentil. This publication will feature work by 140 contemporary photographers and will be published in conjunction with a traveling museum exhibition by the same title. Civilization, the exhibition, will open at the National Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art in Seoul, South Korea, and will tour to different locations around the globe.
Jeffrey Milstein, Newark 8 Terminal B, Newark, NJ
Two editions of the Civilization book will be published. The first is an exhibition catalogue featuring Jeffrey Milstein's Newark 8 Terminal B, Newark, NJ (image above), which will be available for sale at each exhibiting museum. Milstein captured this spectacular aerial depiction of Newark Liberty International Airport from a helicopter in flight. Characteristic of his aerial series to date, the image is remarkably detailed and perfectly symmetrical, offering a detailed study of the intricate workings of the structure below. The artist has placed a hold on this highly sought-after image until September 2018.
Michael Wolf, Architecture of Density 91.
The second version of the book will be available for sale in bookstore and online in Fall 2018. This edition features Michael Wolf's Architecture of Density 91 on the cover - image above. Known for its cropped studies of dense urban landscapes, Michael Wolf's ‘Architecture of Density’ series captures Hong Kong’s highly compressed, often brutal, architectural style. By eliminating the sky and horizon line to flatten each image, Wolf turns the architectural façades into seemingly never-ending abstractions.
The exhibition is produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography in collaboration with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, South Korea. The associated publication will be released in October 2018 in English by Thames & Hudson; in German by Knesebeck; in Italian by Einaudi ; in Korean by Youlhwadang. The museum edition is produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography.
