Huger Foote – My friend from Memphis
"My Friend from Memphis" presents Huger Foote's latest body of work, showing images that are remarkable in their originality. He uses a unique printing process- the pigment transfer method- to achieve unequalled color and depth in his prints. This collection of images, shot in Memphis, Africa, London and Paris, extracts from the most ordinary settings and scenes (a laude- rette, a burger joint, a flower shop) a geometry of formal relationships previously unnoticed. His vision is turned in to shape, color and line. Behind the apparent tranquillity of his photos, lies a personal story. Foote was shot during a car-jacking in his home- town of Memphis. In retrospect, he credits this event with awakening his artistic voice. His convalescence gave him the breathing space to rethink his art. Quietly colorful, it speaks volumes. "My Friend from Memphis" comprises approximately 100 color photographs, accompanied by contributions from renowned writer Susan Minot, acclaimed photographer William Eggleston, film director Bernardo Bertolucci and Richard Serra the sculptor, each commenting on Foote's work. It includes contributions by key figures from the worlds of literature, fine art and film, such as Bertolucci: "Huger, like the great Alfred [Hitchcock] knows how to distill his stories with fascinating and disturbing accuracy."
