The Heaviest Flower Reception

The Urban Culture Project's Paragraph Gallery is excited to host The Heaviest Flower, a two-person exhibition of recent photographic work by longtime friends and peers Elijah Gowin and Colby Caldwell. Tied together through their innovative inquiry of the materiality of photography—both artists use painstaking and elaborate processes for reaching their final images – the exhibition circles around themes of anxiety, loss, and the tenuous beauty of living. An 80-page, full-color catalogue is being published by Tin Roof Press in conjunction with the exhibition.

The full press release can be found here.
