Andrew Borowiec’s Photograph of Rural Provence, at Sasha Wolf Gallery, is the Daily Pic by Blake Gopnik
THE DAILY PIC: Borowiecz spent his childhood in southern France; now he revisits it.
THE DAILY PIC: In 2009, Andrew Borowiec traveled to rural Provence, where he grew up, and shot this lovely image of the village of Tourettes. It is now in his solo show at Sasha Wolf Gallery in New York. Borowiec has captured the strange sense of emptiness that such picturesque villages can have, in our era where they survive more as images of themselves than as functioning human habitats. Like photographs, such villages give vicarious access to a distant reality – the past, in their case. (Image courtesy Sasha Wolf Gallery)
