Amy Stein: New American Fables

„My photographs serve as modern dioramas of our new natural history.“
In Domesticated Amy Stein explores the paradoxical relationship between man and the natural world: The primal issues of comfort and fear, dependence and determination, submission and dominance refer to our modern every day life.
The photographs in this series are constructed based on real stories from American provincial life.
By contrast, the setting of Halloween in Harlem is the City: kids are posing in colourful costumes in  the streets of New York. With their unconscious commitment to the traditions and rituals of this typical American holiday, the protagonists appear proud and isolated at the same time.
New American Fables shows selected works of both series.
Pool Gallery proudly presents the first solo exhibition of Amy Stein in Germany.
The New York based photographer has built up a successful career since graduating from the School of Visual Arts in 2006. She has been exhibited in a number of group shows immediately after graduating, won the 2006 Saatchi Gallery/Guardian Prize, has been named one of the world’s top 15 emerging photographers by American Photo magazine and won the Critical Mass Book Award in 2007.
