Texts by Kim Beil, Susan Bright, and Mark Alice Durant
Brea Souders : eleven years is the first monograph by the Brooklyn-based photographic artist and features works from 2010 to 2021. From delicate and enigmatic tableaux to voyeuristic observations of people wandering a remote rural road, with each project Souders shifts her tools, processes and strategies to re-imagine what a photograph can be and what it might mean. Souders’ images capture fleeting materiality, as seen in her sculptural works created with static electricity and film cut-ups, paintings on film emulsion, and hand-colored photographs of disembodied human shadows imprinted upon the Western landscape.
Brea Souders is an artist working primarily with photography. Her work has been shown internationally, including solo exhibitions with the Abrons Arts Center and Baxter St. at CCNY in New York, as well as the Centre Photographique Rouen Normandie in France, and the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives in Canada. Souders’ work has been featured in the New York Times, ARTnews, the Jeu de Paume Magazine, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and the New Yorker. Her work is included in the books, The Photograph as Contemporary Art; Feelings: Soft Art; How Color Works and Photography is Magic, by Charlotte Cotton. She is represented by the Bruce Silverstein Gallery.
