Renowned American photographer Eve Sonneman’s “Navigation With Dreams” opens Thursday, November 21, 2019 at Nohra Haime Gallery, 500 West 21st Street, instilling a powerful vibrancy in her new series. Using her signature style of pairing stills taken seconds apart, she skillfully captures the intrigue of everyday happenings among iconic locations around the world.
From hip hop dancing in Coney Island to musical instruments in Cannes, Sonneman couples two images from a fleeting moment, revealing only the slightest change between them. The artist’s astute observations present a humanistic narrative to her work, making normally mundane moments fantastically special. Whether it’s a prequel to a laugh or the aftermath of exploding fireworks, the photographs dance with one another.
Sonneman invites us to get lost in the rich backdrops of twinkling city lights, serene cloud-filled skies and dancers pulsating with energy. Each image is meticulously chosen to propel you to the next, revealing a masterful insight into a world otherwise missed.
