From the article for PDN Photo of the Day:
An exhibition of dramatic, black-and-white photographs by artist Victor Cobo is on view at ClampArt through August 9. “Remember When You Loved Me?” is Cobo’s first solo exhibition in New York City.
Cobo’s photography presents a dark, ambiguous world that borders on sinister. “At turns autobiographic and then entirely fabricated, he weaves blustery landscapes with high-contrast figurative imagery including animals, self portraits, and female subjects of adoration, awe, and dread,” states the press release. Hovering between lurid and playful Cobo’s melodramas show a pair of shapely legs in heels scurrying up (or down) a garden wall at night, rats with blazing eyes, a heavy metal mosh pit, an inquisitive squirrel, and many more mysterious scenes.
