Adam Ekberg (USA)
Making such humble events happen is alchemy of sorts, the transformation of the mundane into the poignant. Within the constructed images, he repositions specific celebratory iconography to create minor spectacles. Ekberg’s process requires detailed and elaborate production outside the photographic frame so that what appears within the frame implies simplicity and straightforwardness. It is important to him that these constructions actually exist in the world, if only for the moment in which the photograph is made.
