Lot Essay

Of his work, Matthew Pillsbury says, 'A photograph can reveal extraordinary visual truths that lie beyond the limits of our perception of the world. We all know that in using a short exposure, a photograph can capture things we cannot see. A celebrated example is Muybridge's study of the biomechanics of a galloping horse. In using much longer exposures, from a few minutes to over an hour, I seek truths and beauty in our everyday world that are equally surprising to us.'

Pillsbury's work can be found in the collections of a number of important institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and The Guggenheim Museum, New York.

Gift of Bonni Benrubi Gallery, New York.
