MATT ZORY | FotoFoucs’22: October 8-29, 2022
Studio Kroner is honored to present Cincinnati photographer Matt Zory. Matt will be presenting his show, Bodies of Sand: Life and Solitude In Death Valley, as a part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial, a month-long celebration of photography and lens-based art that unites artists, curators, and educators from around the world.
This year’s Biennial, entitled World Record, considers photography’s extensive record of life on earth, humankind’s impact on the natural world, and the choices we now face as a global community.
2-5 pm, Saturday, October 8
1-2 pm, Saturday, October 15
2-5 pm, Saturday, October 29
Matt’s work explores the vastness and the mystery of Death Valley, where the sense of isolation and forms created by shifting sands have short visual lives, and asks the viewer to consider if they parallel our connection to this earth.
In addition to being a photographer, Matt Zory is the Assistant Principal Bass (Trish and Rick Bryan Chair) for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the rhythm section bassist for the Cincinnati Pops. His most recent book, Through the Lens: The Remaking of Cincinnati’s Music Hall, is a photographic essay that documents the recent historic renovation of Samuel Hannaford’s 19th-century building.
Bodies of Sand: Life and Solitude In Death Valley will open with a public reception on Saturday, October 8, from 2-5 pm. He will also be doing an artist talk on Saturday, October 15, from 1-2 pm, and there will be a closing reception on Saturday, October 28, from 2-5 pm.
