saul fletcher (three images)

Saul Fletcher's work compresses issues of human existence into intimately scaled photographs brimming with psychic energy. Moody, intense, and hermetic in nature, these photographs use a time-honored vocabulary of subjects, ranging from religious symbols to common objects, from abstract expressionist marks to posed models, in order to grapple with complex issues of mortality, sexuality, spirituality, and redemption. Fletcher's entire photographic oeuvre consists of one long sequence of untitled images, their order preconceived not as a grand, declarative narrative but as a studied compilation of moments..
