From my review of Scott Lapham's show "Sea Song" at 5 Traverse in Providence:
Lapham's "Sea Song" is six alluringly sensual black-and-white landscape photos from 2000 to '06. Here low tide reveals rocks covered with a rubbery shag rug of seaweed, rotting pilings sticking up from glassy water like strange teeth, while water slurps mysteriously around a submerged rock. In one image, a grove of cypresses blurred as they shivered during the exposure, creating an effect resembling a traditional Chinese ink drawing.Read the rest at the end here.
Scott Lapham, "Sea Song," 5 Traverse, 5 Traverse St., Providence, April 3 to May 16, 2009.
