© Thomas Dozol, 2015
Dozol’s Summer, May 26th, is the latest print in a body of work in which the artist juxtaposes and overlaps black and white portraits with blocks of primary colors.
Born in 1975 in Fort De France, Martinique, Dozol lives and works in New York City. His recent photographs straddle the realms of art, fashion, and design and depict friends and family who are photographed alone, often in vulnerable positions, as he explores their reactions to becoming the focus of observation. Summer, May 26th, is an edition of 30 and is available for $550 unframed. E/AB’s benefit print supports exhibiting publishers and artists and helps subsidize the Fair’s free admission for the public.
