RUIN

Brian Vanden Brink

October 3 – November 19, 2011

Reception: October 12, 2011 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

In this body of work, Brian Vanden Brink examines rural, industrial, post-industrial, and abandoned architecture and its relationship to the landscape. There he discovers a fascinating world of shapes, textures, spatial relationships and history:  “I love to photograph how and where we live, seeing in our architecture an expression of what we value.”

About the Artist: Brian Vanden Brink was born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1951 and began his career in photography there.  He moved to Maine in 1978 where he built an award-winning career in architectural photography for the last three decades. His work has been featured widely in a variety of design and consumer publications such as Architectural Digest, Architectural Record, Boston Globe Magazine, Coastal Living, Dwell, Design New England, Down East, Maine Home + Design, New England Home, New York Times Magazine, Photo District News, and View Camera Magazine.  In addition, he has published several monographs such as Ruin and his latest publication Porch. Brian currently lives in Camden with his wife Kathleen and teaches workshops at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, ME.
