David Politzer, 2012 Carol Crow Fellowship: When You're Out There


David Polizter is the 2012 recipient of the Carol Crow Memorial Fellowship, selected by Christopher Rauschenberg of Blue Sky Gallery, Portland, OR. Rauschenberg writes: "David Politzer’s photographs look at nature with a sense of humor but with a sense of longing too. It’s not a longing for nature itself as much as it’s a longing for nature to have a more profound meaning to us. There’s nothing “red of tooth and claw” here for us anymore, just pleasant decoration that we are so used to that we don’t see it any longer. David does see it, though. In his photographs, this simulacrum of nature is rising in intensity, moving from the background to the center stage."
