I went to the Nasher this weekend to check out their Color Balance show and ended up spending most of my time in their permanent collection. Nothing against the exhibit or anything, it’s just I never really need more than 10 minutes in a color field exhibit before I’m satisfied. What really caught my attention that day, were a few large format color prints (including the piece above) by Burk Uzzle that were recently added to the Nasher’s permanent collection. His use of composition and color balance is mesmerizing. Take some time to check out his ‘Just Add Water’ + ‘All American’ series on his site. He also happened to photograph a little get together in the 60′s featuring naked hippies listening to music in the mud…

P.S. If your name is Kristy Martino, then you’re probably going to want to check out the ‘John Hermann House’ series…  altars and obsessive collections galore.
