Paul Cava’s 30 Years, a retrospective of this remarkable photographer’s work, will open at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery on 14 October and run through 29 November. Paul’s work is a breathtaking examination of the tactile qualities of flesh and nature, a brilliantly sensual rendering of the ephemeral qualities of eros and the world. More information about the exhibition is here; I wrote about another of his works, Listrum Vulgare, here.
One of Paul’s photos will grace the cover of Word Made Flesh, my book due from EyeCorner Press in January 2011. But don’t miss this chance to see a career-long retrospective of this astonishingly sensitive and sensual American photographer.
