"Less than a year ago, I made a decision to only shoot with a digital camera or phone," says 33-year-old Brooklyn-based photographer Kate Steciw, who previously also worked with film. "I really wanted to access the way that people are taking photographs now, but also think about memory in a spatial, 3D way and give these images a physical presence." The result of this meta-technological exploration is Steciw's first solo show, "Love My Way," a Tim Barber-curated exhibition of Photoshop-inspired, digitally distorted photo installations—such as a massive, disjointed image of a swimmer made up of pictures Steciw took of six custom photo rugs ordered online and a series of multi-colored, long sintra sculptures composed of the artist's photos. Steciw's work draws heavily upon the artist's day job as a retoucher at Art + Commerce in its concentration on manipulating images in post-production, examining the the extent to which Photoshop can double as an expressionistic application. "I just sort of stumbled into a career in post-production," says Steciw, "but it's influenced my entire artistic process."


"LOVE MY WAY" OPENED LAST NIGHT AT PRIMARY PHOTOGRAPHIC GALLERY ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE. IT RUNS THROUGH SEPTEMBER 12.
