Darin Mickey

Mickey pulls us close to his subjects to contemplate their rich material history, offering an intimate and yet expansive position. An archaeological record: an assertion of what was, what is, and what we imagine will be.”

–Melissa Catanese

Darin Mickey lives and works in New York City. His work has been exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions throughout the U.S. and internationally. He is the author of Stuff I Gotta Remember Not to Forget, J&L Books. His images have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post Magazine, I.D., Foam, and Doubletake among others. Darin also teaches photography at The Cooper Union and The International Center of Photography.

Our final theme at Carnegie Museum of Art begins today. THE LIFE OF OBJECTS now though July 28.We’re always surrounded by things, but most of the time we hardly take notice of their origin, purpose, or even their presence unless they stop working or malfunction in some way. Yet in this parallel world, things live and die, function and break, and coexist with us right here, right now. We are not alone, and the works in this section take a variety of material objects and non-humans as their focus of inquiry. From claustrophobic close-ups of the inner workings of machines to collections of towering urban trees, buildings, and animals, these works provide a glimpse of our world without us.Come in and check out books by Paul Salveson, Ruth van Beek, Luciano Rigolini, Ed Panar, Georgia Hutchison & Arini Byng, Mitch Epstein, Jason Fulford, Vincent Delbrouck, Tim Smyth, Charlotte Dumas, Marnix Goosens, Nicholas Gottlund, Erik van der Weidje, Luke Stephenson, Lorenzo Vitturi, and more…

Our new theme: SCIENCE FICTION & DREAMS starts today in the Sandbox!
Although they may be based in our day-to-day reality, these photobooks seem to possess ‘otherworldliness’, transporting us to a dreamlike place through visual poetry and atmospheric effect. There is a fantastical quality to much of this work, and despite what appears to be a grounding in today’s world, the format and presentation of these books take us someplace beyond the familiar, encouraging us to look at the world like aliens landing on some strange new planet for the first time. 
Come in and check out a selection of books by Marten Lange, Anne Schwalbe, Bertrand Fleuret, Rinko Kawauchi, Joan Fontcuberta, Mike Slack, Jochen Lempert, António Júlio Duarte, Martin Kollar, Lieko Shiga, and more…

An Interview with Photographer Mike Slack

The Los Angeles-based press The Ice Plant, run by Mike Slack and Tricia Gabriel, is among small presses currently turning out photography books that are more manuscript than monograph. Aside from co-managing The Ice Plant, Slack is a photographer who up until this point has worked mostly in Polaroid, producing a series of books that ask to be read despite their lack of text.

I walked up to the Ice Plant booth at the LA Art Book Fair this April and Believer illustrations editor Jason Polan said hey and introduced me to Mike Slack. Mike Slack showed me a picture of a dome in Casa Grande. Over the next few months we emailed one another.

I. THE PERCEPTION ENHANCER

THE BELIEVER: When I ran into you at the LA Art Book Fair you were having a conversation about some black and white laser prints that you made and were selling in unlimited editions for five dollars each. You said that you might go print more that night if something sold out. It’s a total contrast to the unique-object Polaroid prints that you’ve made in the past, but the aesthetic of the pictures has stayed relatively constant. What were the major catalysts for your shift in process?

MIKE SLACK: Those prints were made quickly and cheaply while I was doing something else—we needed a big poster for The Ice Plant’s space at the Fair and at the last minute I added a few of the pictures I’d been playing with earlier in the week. I liked the effect – distressed, dreamy, Xerox-like – cranked out a few more, cut them into a stack of smaller posters to sell at our table, then kept going back to print more as they sold. I’ve been staring at all these new digital photographs the last few months—scrutinizing the pictures in super-hi-res full color on a bright backlit screen, correcting, adjusting, controlling, etc—so the lo-fi effect of those laser prints, with all their flaws & variations, was really liberating. 

The more radical shift—using a digital camera after a ten year affair with the Polaroid—began a few years ago as the 600 film was becoming obsolete and my cameras had all seen better days. Whatever I was doing in that format felt complete, more or less, and the charm of its limitations was wearing off. The routine of making pictures is not so different now—I’m attracted to similar subjects, spaces, feelings, ideas, using the camera as a kind of meditation device or perception enhancer—but turning these lifeless electronic “files” into alluring physical objects is a different process with its own pattern of trial, error, experimentation.

I am interested in photography because it’s a medium with a particular relationship to reality. In photography, we always cut-out a scene – elements or fragments from reality; and photographs have a very particular effect as they play with veracity. They can be used as evidence, but at the same time, they can be used as a persuasive tool. The author of the photographs and/or the author who relates the narrative around the photographs (sometimes they are the same person, sometimes separated) often has a very dominant presence – influencing their audience.
