"…I am making a case for his clarity and control, for his optimism and good humor, and the sheer pleasure he takes in these soaring architectural honeycombs, these lush landscapes, these glossy people: this America."
--Jim Lewis, Trans magazine

Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Todd Eberle. This is Eberle's first exhibition with the gallery. This show brings together photographs he has taken throughout the United States over the last ten years.

Known for turning his lens toward the subjects of art and architecture, Eberle gives a glimpse of the disparate images that make up America, united by a certain minimalist aesthetic that runs through all of the artist's work. Whether earnest or kitsch, an unfurling flag or the Vegas strip, there is an organizing principle in every shot – each photograph is approached with a similar sense of control, symmetry and proportion.

Todd Eberle was born in Cleveland, OH in 1963. Eberle first came to prominence in the early 1990s with his iconic photographs of Donald Judd's works and architecture in Marfa, Texas and New York. He is currently the photographer-at-large for Vanity Fair and has had recent solo exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. His work can currently be seen in Skin + Bones at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
