To Have and Have Not
In his visual representation of the present economic crisis in America, Devin Yalkin lets the world of the political and financial elite collide with that of activists and demonstrators. How do hearings in the House of Representatives and the Senate in Washington relate to the large groups of people who took to the streets of New York to stand up for ideals, justice and human values? In gritty black and white Yalkin captures the chaotic, confused and tense state of the country.
In HADES Devin Yalkin is not so much photographing people, but rather the way they move in space, individually and collectively. He records the culmination in blurring faces, constantly changing gestures and melting bodies. The work suggests a series of illusions, the treacherousness of outward appearances. These are apparently images from a dream of an underworld, dark and gritty.
Devin Yalkin (United States, 1981) took his BA at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2010. His photos have been seen in solo and group exhibitions in Turkey, Germany and the United States. Periodicals that have published his work include The New York Times, TIME, Esquire Russia, Stern and New York Magazine.
