I love this image by Lisa Oppenheim. “The Sun is Always Setting Somewhere Else” is a series of slide projections that juxtapose 16 sunsets in New York with photos of sunsets taken by soldiers in Iraq. The photos are part of a group show going on at Lisa Cooley (GMAP) and will be on display through April 20, 2008.
Just a thought… in the context of our increasingly compartmentalized world (via the Internet), I think these images convey some very important messages about interconnectedness. Anyway, the entire group show is very strong and I recommend it!
