A Series of Occurrences by Ben Alper
A Series of Occurrences is a collection of Durham-based photographer, Ben Alper’s black and white photographs made from 2013 - 2015. "The stark pictures of commonplace objects and spaces subject the anonymous American landscape to intense scrutiny, revealing an experience of the everyday that is both enigmatic and unsettling. A tightly coiled curtain in an abandoned house becomes a cryptic totem of a former domestic life; a sculpture of disembodied feet photographed at night uneasily points to both a human presence and an absence. Taken together, the photographs in this book imply a fragmentary narrative, highlighting the photograph’s simultaneous role as both evidence and poetic fiction."
