First Saturday Art Walk: June 4, 6-8pm

Carine Magescas

La Plage Blanche 

 

Themes+Projects is delighted to present the first West Coast solo exhibition of French Photographer Carine Magescas: “La Plage Blanche”, featuring Magescas’ minimalist seascapes and surf scenes, shot on some of the America’s most iconic surf beaches from Ocean Beach to Montauk, as well as in a remote area of Camargue in Southern France, and all sharing the characteristic of being slightly rough and un-crowded.

 

Magescas’ dexterity for sophisticated minimalism can be experienced within a single frame. Through delicate overexposure and an ability to strip the image to the essential she captures luminous haven of subdued serenity with a timeless quality. “I work a lot in over-exposure, often reducing the people in the photos to silhouettes in the light” says Magescas, “I like minimal compositions with a level of abstraction that allow thoughts to wander.”

 

Carine Magescas is a French photographer who moved to the US in 1998. After living in San Francisco and New York City, she now splits her time between Los Angeles and Connecticut. Her photography was first discovered after she launched a collaborative photo blog in 2010: 2Filles2Villes.com. French for 2Girls2Cities.com, 2Filles2Villes is a dialog in photos with a friend in Paris; one picture each per week, forming a diptych with a dynamic of its own.

 

Since then, Magescas’ work has been exhibited in New York, London, Nantucket, Greenwich and the Hamptons and her photographs hang in homes and private collections from Hong Kong to London. This is the first time the photographs are exhibited “back home” and in San Francisco.
