Jesse Burke: Low
(USA)

Jesse Burke draws the viewer into his beautifully crafted portraits of homeless men interspersed with studies of plant life, each photographically etched in velvety black grounds. These images capture the fragility of masculinity with pathos and dignity. Contrasting the figure in bright light against a dark backdrop, the artist bestows an aura of grace upon these displaced souls, consciously referencing the grief or suffering that marks historical paintings of Christ.

Burke's photography has been exhibited globally and he was selected a finalist for Review Sante Fe and Critical Mass in 2010.
