Michael Eastman’s “Interiors” at Barry Friedman

  • Michael Eastman

“I’ve often been accused of being more of a painter than a photographer,” says Michael Eastman, an American photographer who expresses painterly qualities in his grand photos of architecture and design. “I used to think it was a criticism, but I have recently realized that is who I am.” A collection of his work is on exhibit at Barry Friedman Ltd. gallery in New York through June 30. The compilation, entitled “Interiors,” features bold colors and focuses on the entryways and interiors of dilapidated buildings. Eastman’s installment comprises architectural photographs from Cuba, the United States, and Milan and Venice, Italy. The pictures, devoid of people, call attention to the building structure itself, and each image has a dreamlike quality, similar to that of a painting. (www.barryfriedmanltd.com)
