MonoVisioN, a selection of photographs from photographer Scott Frances, will open with 68 large-scale works at the D&D Building's Annex Building in Manhattan through July 29, with an opening reception on June 21.
The exhibition coincides with the release of Frances’ first monograph of the same title with an introduction by Richard Meier, published by Pond Press.
In the preface to MonoVisioN, Meier writes, “A Scott Frances photograph captures all these ephemeral elements that I have always explored in my architectural work. The images in this book portray the qualities that give every space and building a sense of place, and the constant dialogue between the man-made and the natural. MonoVisioN becomes an exploration of solid and void, transparency and opaqueness, the rational and the intuitive, and an essay on composition.”
Frances’ exhibition begins a main feature of this year’s summer programming at the D&D Building. MonoVisioN was recently shown at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California, and will continue to tour to the other Cohen Design Centers in South Florida and Houston following the show in New York.
Scott Frances was born and raised in New York City, where he is currently based. He studied fine arts and journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Early in his career he shot for ESTO photographics, under the auspices of the architectural photography great, Ezra Stoller. Following ESTO he began to document the work of architect Richard Meier, with whom he continues to work with today.
Frances has worked with several of the world’s top architects and designers and is a regular contributor to Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, and Departures. He has photographed the homes of such celebrities as Jennifer Aniston, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Jim Belushi, Claire Danes, Clive Davis and Steve Jobs.
Three signed limited-edition print by Frances will be auctioned to attendees at the opening reception, taking place Tuesday, June 21 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. A book signing and gallery talk will take place Wednesday, July 22 at 2:00 p.m. The exhibition will be on view June 21–July 29, Monday–Friday from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
