Dustin Aksland: Ctrl+P: Photography Taken Offline at Catherine Edelman GalleryJuxtapoz // Friday, 15 Jul 2011
Tonight, July 15, in Chicago, Catherine Edelman Gallery will open the newest chapter of the Ctrl+P: Photography Taken Offline series, featuring photography from Dustin Aksland's Sounds of the Soil series. Ctrl+P is a project where Edeleman Gallery finds top talents on blogs and the web, and promotes a series of their work in the gallery.
The California born, NYC-based Aksland says of his series, "Sounds of the Soil is a photographic journey through the beautiful and enigmatic Rajasthan region of India. It's a region filled with harsh climate and terrain, but is contrasted with the warm, fun loving spirit of it's inhabitants. On my journey I met so many interesting individuals, but the subjects I was most intrigued by were the ones working this unforgiving land, and the entertainers roaming the dessert with their songs of love, separation, heroism and revelry."
