Nicholas Muellner, from in Most Tides An Island, 2017 Nicholas Muellner (Ithaca, NY) combines text and image in his book In Most Tides An Island (Self Publish, Be Happy, 2017). The book explores two distinct subjects, one documentary, the other based in invention, which converge unexpectedly. Muellner’s work witnesses the lives of closeted gay men in provincial Russia, while also composing the gothic tale of a solitary woman on a remote tropical island. “Shot along Baltic, Caribbean and Black Sea coastlines, distant landscapes met at the rocky point of Alone,” says Muellner, “From that vista, they ask: what do intimacy and solitude mean in a radically alienated but hyper-connected world?” On view, two exhibitions: By the Book Vol. 2: New Photography Publications and Collaborative Histories: Dieu Donné through April 21, 2018. By the Book Vol. 2: New Photography Publications is The Print Center's second exhibition dedicated to new photo publications and the artworks that inspired them. The exhibition includes books and artworks by Saleem Ahmed, Tim Carpenter, Julianna Foster, Nicholas Muellner and Public Collectors. http://printcenter.org/100/collab-histories-by-the-book/
