Tim Carpenter + Nathan Pearce + Deadbeat Club
Nathan Pearce and Tim Carpenter will present a deconstructed version of their joint project, Still feel gone, a unique collaboration between the two Illinois natives. This publication in its original form places two books together as one, with the work of the two photographers presented separately, yet in active dialogue with one another. In showing this work in a deconstructed form, the images are allowed to stand on their own, allowing viewers to create their own connections between images.
In addition there will be a one night Deadbeat Club pop-up shop in the Lab @ Silver Eye, with founder, Clint Woodside. Deadbeat Club, established in 2011 , produces and publishes contemporary photo books & zines. Based in Los Angeles, CA., Deadbeat Club works with a varied group of photographers and artists from around the world, Deadbeat Club selects its collaborators with a belief in establishing a longstanding relationship with those involved in the project’s process.
